OUR VINEYARDS

PERFECTLY LOCATED IN THE HEART OF THE WEST COAST, SOUTH AFRICA

WHERE CRASHING WAVES & SALTY SEA BREEZES NURTURE OUR VINES

The French term terroir is not easily defined, but among winemakers it represents all environmental factors that shape the personalities of wines from a specific vineyard or region. In our district, nature is unrelenting. It rains an average of only 50mm per year and the Southwesterly wind constantly buffets the coastline, but thanks to a series of fortunate coincidences this region is ideal for winemaking.

SOIL

Another of nature’s gifts is our soil. It consists of a well-drained upper layer of red sand mixed with seashells and deeper layers of limestone that imparts a flinty character to our wines. Our terroir is so unusual that in 2005 South Africa’s prestigious Wine Magazine gave our Sauvignon Blanc a 5-star rating, making it only the second Sauvignon Blanc to do so in 12 years.

CLIMATE

Because we have virtually no summer rain, our vineyards run little risk of being felled by rot and disease. The ocean and the wind further flavour us by carrying salt flakes onto the vine leaves. Not only does this alkalinity repel downy and powdery mildew it also gives our wines the distinct minerality that bears testimony to the close proximity of the Atlantic Ocean.
