Cape of Good Hope

This is a range created in recognition of the Cape of Good Hope’s vinous heritage, which stretches back more than 350 years, when the first Governor of the Cape planted grapes. These unique wines are the result of irreplaceable parcels of old vines and site specific terroirs. The labels reflect the grape variety as well as the origin and singular characters behind them.

Cape of Good Hope Serruria Chardonnay
A wine from very high altitude vineyards that deliver delicate aromatics that blossom with grace and beauty: white peach, lilies, just a hint of tangy apple and a light whiff of struck match. This delicacy carries through onto the palate with fresh nectarine, lemon, lime and grapefruit edge fleshed out by a creamy lees richness.
Cape of Good Hope Basson Pinotage
A wine from high altitude bush vines on the Paardeberg farmed by the Basson family. This region is renowned for its great affinity for Pinotage and this wine is instantly appealing with overt ripe red and black fruit tinged with seductive floral notes and a lingering deeply concentrated smooth fruity finish.
Cape of Good Hope Riebeeksrivier Caroline
A typical Rhône style white blend comprising of 63% Chenin Blanc, 22% Roussanne and 15% Viognier. The palate boasts with rich, ripe honeyed peach and tropical fruit, supported by a creamy, toasty oak element. Oak is prominent, but not overwhelming, and balances the fruit well. The mouthfeel ends on a long, satisfying caramel and honeycomb note.
Cape of Good Hope Van Lill & Visser Chenin Blanc
A wine from vineyards planted in 1964 and worked by the same growers after whom it is named. A rich, full-flavoured and powerful wine with overt citrus, fleshy peach, sultana and ripe pineapple fruit embellished with spicy vanilla oak finishing with freshness, power and length with a discernable minerality.
Cape of Good Hope Altima Sauvignon Blanc
Appealing aromas of granadilla and grapefruit zest with a tinge of peach blossom too. The mouthful is succulent and fresh with lively acidity which is balanced by the tangy and tropical flavours of granadilla and stone fruit. Delicious citrus zip is added by grapefruit and yuzu notes. Vibrant yet nicely rounded and balanced. Not a one-dimensional Sauvignon blanc this! Long, lingering finish.
Cape of Good Hope Riebeeksrivier Southern Slopes
This wine is a blend which consists mostly out of Shiraz, and other varietals from this slope includes Mourvedre and Petit Syrah (Durif). This wine is made from grapes from our Riebeeksrivier farm in the Swartland. This farm is situated on the slopes of the Riebeek Kasteel mountains on the Malmesbury side with our vineyards on southern and western slopes. This wine is from the southern slopes where there is more clay in the soil mixed with Malmesbury shale. The combination of slope and soil, culminates into this deeper and richer style red blend.
