About

At Marianne we are privileged to have two state of the art boutique wineries, each perfectly equipped to elaborate fine, hand crafted wines. Influenced by our French heritage and international savoir-faire, we strive to make French style wines with a touch of South African vibes. At Marianne we believe in natural, minimal intervention winemaking, with the firm believe that the secret to a great wine lies in the vineyard and in the beautiful landscape that surrounds it.

Our Property. Est. 2004, the Marianne Estate is a 36-hectare boutique wine estate located on the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountain. The estate features 25 hectares of vineyards, Tasting Room & Cellars, Luxury Accommodation and the Floreal Brasserie.

A Tradition of Winemaking. Christian Dauriac, the proprietor of the Marianne Estate, has been making wine in Bordeaux for over 30 years. He currently owns three Chateaux in Bordeaux: Destieux (Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion), Montlisse (Grand Cru) and La Clemence (Pomerol). Christian regularly brings in specialists from France to
lend expertise with the winemaking and viticulture.

Terroir. Climate, soil, altitude and slope orientation are essential elements required in capturing as much varietal character as possible. The climate is mild to warm with southern winds, ensuring grapes are cooled to optimum temperature for maximum character and flavour. Soils are predominantly medium textured and an average annual
rainfall of 800 mm ensures minimal irrigation.

Tasting notes

Vintage: Climatic condition leading up to the harvest was warmer and drier than usual. This resulted in slower ripening due to thinner grapevine canopy and lower water levels in the soil. Accordingly yields were naturally lower due to smaller berry size, which consequently, also lead to crisp small berries concentrated in flavor producing wines with an abundance of fresh fruit aromas and a fresh, crisp pallet.

Winemakers comments: Amara means “grace, mercy, kindness” in the native lgbo language of Nigeria. Symbolizing our appreciation for the African terroir and the wines we can produce from it. The AMARA Chardonnay is a fruitful white wine that reveals its African nature on the nose through subtle notes of honey bush native to the Cape’s
vegetation, fresh citrus and stone fruit aromas. The pallet is balanced with roundness, minerality and a crisp finish.

Winemaking

Standard, non-interventional, natural winemaking procedures were used to elaborate this wine, with the firm belief that the secret to a great wine lies in the vineyard and in
the beautiful landscape that surrounds it. The grapes were picked in the early morning hours so that they arrive cold and fresh at the cellar. Berries are crushed into a
pneumatic press, where the grapes are softly pressed to separate the fresh flavorsome juices, almost green in color, from the grapes skins. The clean juice is then fermented
and aged in stainless-steel tanks at a low temperature to ensure that fruity, varietal and fermentation aromas are not lost during the fermentation.
