Tasting notes on the 2019 vintage:
'Own & Elgin grapes, 13 blocks, 5 clones, up to 30 stainless steel tanks & cement/polyethylene ‘eggs’ - unoaked but by no means simple, 2018 (92 pts) has fresh citrus fruit & zest, mineral core; also-tasted 2019 even more purity, flintiness, persistence.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

'Entirely unwooded, Janina is one of the best value Chardonnays in the Cape, produced from five different clones grown in Stellenbosch and Elgin. Partially fermented and aged in concrete eggs, it's a brisk, vibrant, tangy style with impressive focus and palate length. 2020-23' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

About Eikendal:
Since 1981 Eikendal Vineyards has belonged to the Saager family, who originate from Switzerland. Eikendal is situated in an ideal location, on the slopes of the Helderberg mountain near the Atlantic Ocean. This mountain and maritime microclimate provides ideal conditions for the vineyards on the 76 hectare Eikendal property. According to Cellarmaster, Nico Grobler ‘the magic has always been in the terroir,’ and therefore Eijendal follows a minimal intervention approach in their winemaking.
