Riesling grapes are harvested from our vineyards on the hills near the town of Darling. These vineyards are some 300 metres above sea level and are cooled by breezes from the Atlantic ocean. This wine is produced in an off-dry style.

A change in regulation in South Africa now allows us to label true Riesling as exactly that, dropping the Rhine or Weisser prefix. This was used in the past to differentiate the true Riesling from Crouchen Blanc, which is also known as Paarl or Cape Riesling in South Africa.


Riesling was hand harvested from cool vineyards near Darling on the west coast some 300 metres above sea level. This 3 hectare bushvine vineyard is unirrigated, and the vines grow on deep red oakleaf soils. The vineyard is 8 years old and the 2010 harvest yielded 6 tons of grapes per hectare.

HARVEST DATES: Mid February 2010


Bunches were hand harvested at 23.5 degrees balling and whole bunch pressed in a pneumatic press. The juice was allowed to settle for 48 hours, racked off and cold fermented in stainless steel tanks using Vin7 yeast. Cold fermentation took place at 11 degrees Celsius. When the desired residual sugar level was reached, fermentation was halted and the wine bottled.


Soft floral notes accompanied by aromas of greengage and pineapple. Initial sweetness is balanced by fresh green apple acidity. The palate offers generous mouthfeel and lingering fullness, concluding with a hint of lime.
