This extensive planting of mulitple grape varieties means that all wines can be genuinely 'single estate', making best use of the unique positioning of the vineyards.
The farm is 17 kilometres from Stanford in a glen in the Kleinrivier Mountains, where the Klein River flows through. The Kleinrivier Mountains is the southernmost mountain range in Africa and its slopes provide a variety of aspects and soil types. The farm’s proximity to the sea ensures cooling breezes from Walker Bay in the afternoon while the South Easter blowing in from Agulhas on the Indian Ocean reduces the summer heat.
This traqditionally Italian grape variety can be found in a fair degree of abundance in the Walker Bay area of the Cape and takes advantage of the cooling maritime influences in order to mature gracefully over a long, slow ripening period. The resulting wine shows superb freshness with sundried tomato, red peppers and clove spice. The pallet reveals roasted tomatoes and spicy tones from the oak, supple tannins and a clean finish.
This is the signature white wines from the estate. It is softer than the Sauvignons made in New Zealand and the Loire valley with a clean and fresh nose with expressive fruity aromas of grapefruit and melon. These flavours follow through on the pallet with lovely minerality and a green apple finish.
