This wind-swept winery derives its name from the belt of land which spans the tempestuous tip of Africa’s southernmost coastline. At almost 35 degrees below the equator, this part of our fair Cape is characterised by severe winds, billowing mist and below average temperatures. A unique combination of maritime climate, alternating sites and diverse soil types work together to create the terroir which distinguishes the wines of Strandveld Vineyards.

Winter and Spring 2013 and the Summer of 2014 were the wettest on record since 1905 with a recorded total of 879mm from 1 August 2013 - 31 July 2014. November was extremely wet with 150mm rainfall. December was humid and January did not have the normal southeasterly winds but did have 100mm of rain. These conditions were not the typical Mediterranean climate normally experienced. Fortunately our stony gravel soils drain quickly and February and March were dry and cool so our grapes were still healthy. The resulting conditions produced fresh wines with a 1% lower than usual alcohol level.

After destalking and minimal crushing, berries were left to cold soak for 48 hours. Fermentation with selected Rhône yeast strains. Temperature controlled at 22-26C. Pump overs effected thrice a daily.

Barrel matured for 18 months in 100% French oak in 30% new barrels and the balance older.
