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.

19 Year old bush vines planted in weathered granite soil. Yield of 4.2 tons per hectare – all dry land, unirrigated.

Grapes were fermented in stainless steel tanks and pumped over 3 - 4 times a day.

After a light pressing the Pinotage underwent malolactic fermentation before going into 33% new French oak barrels for 18 months.

Food pairing

Delicious served with barbecued ostrich steaks or springbok fillet.
