More Information

In the cellar

The grapes are picked by hand and then whole bunch pressed without the use of Sulphur. The juice is left for 1 day to settle before racking it to barrels and leaving it to naturally ferment until dry. The wine is stirred once a month and kept in the 300/400 and 500L barrels for almost a year before sulphuring up and bottling it.

In the vineyard

Planted in 1982 these old bush vines now never yield more than four tons per hectare. Unirrigated and planted in weathered granite topsoil and crumbly clay sub-soil it’s called “Kliprug” by the labourers due to all the numerous rocks on the ground where the grapes for this wine is grown.

About the Wine Estate

Kaapzicht is a 4th generation family farm, wine is their passion, their livelihood and their life. Their wines are grown on old weathered granite soils on the north-western slopes of the Bottelary Hills (warm direct sunlight) , 30 km from the Atlantic Ocean (cool sea breezes) and have thus a perfect combination of everything needed to create full bodied, fruity wines. On 190 ha (162 ha under vineyards) they grow 70 % red cultivars, (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinotage, Cinsaut, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Pinot Noir) and 30 % white cultivars (mainly Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, some Muscat d'Alexandrie and even less Chardonnay). A beautiful farm with a marvellous story behind each wine, a must visit on your next trip to the Stellenbosch Winelands.
