For all the Chardonnay lovers this is an estate for you. In the Devon Valley is where you’ll find Louisvale. When Hans Froehling and Leon Stemmet bought the estate in 1988, they began planting vines a year later. It still boasts a 100 year old homestead designed by Sir Herbert Baker.
Only when Marinus Bredell took over the winemaking in 1993, did he introduce red wines to the Chardonnay only repertoire. In 1997, Simon Smith took over the care of the vines and wines for the past 15 years. Four friends and business bought the estate in 2010. Altmann Allers, Hendrik Kluever, Zane Meyer and Johann Kirsten still nurture this estate today.
Their Louisvale range includes Louisvale Chardonnay (their signature wine), Louisvale Chavant, Louisvale Unwooded Chardonnay with a true expression of fruit and Louisvale Dominique which is a red blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Shiraz.
The Stone Road Range includes Stone Road Sauvignon Blanc, Stone Road Merlot and Stone Road Cabernet Sauvignon which is a well matured wine for easy drinking.
