Spring season is almost upon us and we have some great news. This year we will not only be offering Pinotage from South Africa, but...
Wait for it...
Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa too!!
Grapes Being Sourced: Cabernet Sauvignon
Location: One of the Northernmost wine regions in South Africa's Western Cape. It spans 90 miles between Lutzville in the North and Citrusdal Valley in the South.
Grower Information: The grapes thrive in the hot, dry mesoclimates and are tempered by cool ocean breezes at night and good cold units during winter. These growing conditions make the perfect recipe for good quality Cabernet Sauvignon. Also, you will find pockets of very old, almost ancient vines in this area. Vines were first planted in this area in the 1700's
Location: 186 miles North of Capetown. The Cederberg mountains contain a nature reserve. The mountain range is named after the endangered Clanwilliam cedar, which is a tree endemic to the area.
Grower Information: These Pinotage grapes are from older vines and are cultivated at the highest altitude in South Africa. You can expect intense flavors with high levels of complexity. These grapes produce excellent Pinotage and can be compared to Napa and Sonoma in terms of quality.
