Wonderful sun-ripe yellow fruit with crunchy apple, fresh pineapple and a lick of oak. The palate is medium bodied and fresh, but with fleshy texture and good weight. A rich fruited core of fruit on the mid-palate builds to a crisp, dry finish.

Since the first vintage was bottled in 1984, Kaapzicht has become highly respected for their good value for money, quality range of wines, having earned a multitude of local and international awards. For 3 generations the Steytler Family has been running their 190 hectare large estate hands-on: Brothers Danie and George being the winemaker and viticulturist and their wives being in charge of marketing and finances, as well hiring out a venue and a self-catering cottage. This beautiful estate in the Bottelary Hills celebrated its 60th anniversary as a family farm in 2006.

Planted in 1982 this old bush vines now never yields more than 4 tons per Hectare. Unirrigated and planted in weathered granite topsoil and crumbly clay sub-soil it’s called “Kliprug” by the laborers cause of all the numerous rocks on the ground.

Grapes are picked by hand and then whole bunch pressed without the use of Sulphur. The juice is left 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. The RS is natural sugar which did not ferment dry.
