Le Bonheur

Stellenbosch

Nestled between the magnificent Simonsberg Mountains and Klapmuts Hill, Le Bonheur is the gateway to South Africa’s most renowned wine producing region Stellenbosch.

With a history dating back to the 1700’s, Le Bonheur Wine Estate epitomises the rich heritage of Stellenbosch. Historically “Le Bonheur” was a resting place for travellers and traders, offering lush green surroundings and natural spring waters.  The original owners of this scenic farm, the French Huguenot De Villiers family, fittingly named it “Le Bonheur”, meaning “happiness”.  Today the Estate retains its sense of place, timeless setting, and rich heritage.

The Eagle’s Lair Chardonnay 2020

The 2020 vintage is considered as a highlight of the decade. A pale straw appearance with elegant notes of citrus blossoms, melon, and white peach with a touch of minerality on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied, with a crisp acidity. Generous citrus fruit is supported by a touch of oak. The Le Bonheur Chardonnay is known for its retained power and elegant balance, with deft use of oak. Ideal pairing for grilled fish, shellfish, or oysters.

The Manor Meander Merlot 2018

A dark ruby red wine with elegant notes of ripe cherries, blackcurrant and cedarwood, with subtle hints of potpourri and dark chocolate. A medium-bodied with supple and fine tannins. This pleasingly smooth red wine presents generous fruit, silky texture, and a fine balance. Enjoy with Spaghetti Bolognese, or grilled lamb or steak.

The Canaan Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

The flagship of the Le Bonheur Estate and epitomises classic Stellenbosch Cabernet from the Simonsberg. A dark ruby red with classic notes of dense blackcurrant, cedarwood and subtle hints of pencil shavings and dark chocolate. A full-bodied, with supple and smooth tannins. With deft use of oak and meticulous blending, this wine presents fine balance and excellent ageing potential. Enjoy with medium-rare rib-eye steak or a rack of lamb.
