Stellenbosch Reserve

Jean Engelbrecht, along with his friends Dillie Malherbe and Jannie Durand, set out to create a wine that would not only embody all that is Stellenbosch, but that would also pay homage to this great town at the heart of the Cape winelands. Each wine in this range pays tribute to an historical landmark in Stellenbosch.

Stellenbosch Reserve Hangbrug Chenin Blanc
Founded in 1679, it is South Africa’s second oldest town after Cape Town and is breathtakingly beautiful with an old world hospitality that sets it apart from any other place in our country. The walk across the Iconic ‘Eersterivier Hangbrug’ is an experience enjoyed by students over many decades, often with a glass of wine in hand. This wine pays homage to the Hangbrug and we know it will remain for generations to come. It has been a privilege to call this place home and with these wines, we would like to pay homage to its rich heritage and of late it is becoming the center stage of fine cuisine on the entire continent.

Stellenbosch Reserve Kruithuis Syrah
The Kruithuis was completed in 1777 as the munitions building for the Dutch East India Company. Prior to this, the officers of the Stellenbosch cavalry had to go to Cape Town for military training once a year. Today the VOC Kruithuis is a symbol of military strength and power, which is reflected in the powerful fruit flavours and structure of the 2018 Syrah.
