Franschhoek Boutique wine and lifestyle destination Terre Paisible attracted high praise when its Vigne d’Or Chardonnay 2021 scored 91 points in the latest Tim Atkin South Africa Report, the authority on South African wine by the renowned British Master of Wine. And this was barely three months after making its first appearance on the global wine scene.

Vigne d’Or is created from two selected vineyard parcels: the foundation is the chardonnay vineyard on Terre Paisible’s Franschhoek property, which is the “opulent part of the wine”, while the vineyard in the Stellenbosch Berg imparts an austere element. “Terre Paisible is seeking ways of to make the best chardonnay possible, as we see this noble variety as having all the features of excellence and distinction with which the name Terre Paisible wishes to be associated,” says Terre Paisible winemaker Adam Mason.
