Thanks Hank.

Got onto that already & been looking at Platters.

Not been around there since '98 so was interested if any locals could recommend a few hidden gems.

Cheers

Chardonnay - to my taste - Meerlust, the first one you would come to from Cape Town, just off the N2 on the R310.

Best to sort of stay in the same region.

So after Meerlust make your way to Neethlingshof, they have an excellent Pinotage, called The Owls Post Pinotage. There other reds are also good. From there head to Jordan Winery, great spot for lunch and some lovely wines, make sure to try the Cobblers hill. I'm myself not a great fan of Chardonnay but I quite like the Jordan unoaked one. If you really appreciate wine make a booking for a private tasting at De Toren, there wines are spectacular but comes with a price tag and you have to book. Otherwise De Morgenzon just before Jordan on the same road is also a good option. One other winery to consider is Mulderbosch, a beautiful setting and great pizzas if you'd rather have a more relaxed lunch.

For Pinotage I would suggest Beyerskloof.
