About

Sited high in the beautiful Franschhoek Valley to the east of Stellenbosch, Topiary is owned by two renowned French vignerons; Philippe Colin of Chassagne-Montrachet fame and Serge Jaczynski, a wine agent and consultant sommelier. Since acquiring the estate in late 2014, Philippe’s first full harvest at the helm coincided with the stunning 2015 vintage.

With plantings of red varietals dominating Topiary’s vineyards it is surely within the 2ha of Chardonnay vines that Philippe feels most at home. At 700 metres above sea-level these vines benefit from a cooler micro-climate than many sites in the region, lending the Chardonnay a most Burgundian character.
