The wine's name, Black Bream, is drawn from a synonym of our national fish, the "Galjoen". the endangered fish is normally found in inaccessible areas of the coastline with dangerous reefs and turbulent water thus being safeguarded by its environment.

The vineyards are situated in a hidden valley in the Walker Bay area, in close proximity to the ocean at an altitude of 350m. the unique soils are a determining factor for the distinct wines created from this site. The pioneering vineyards are planted in a calcareous rich soil that is perfectly suited to the variety. The soil, in combination with proximity and altitude deliver grapes of exceptional quality.
