Between two mighty oceans, on the southern tip of Africa, lies the historic Saxenburg Wine Farm. Here, memory and the seasons conspire with the cellarmaster’s craft to produce unique wines of consistent and exceptional quality. For centuries wayfarers bound for the East Indies found hospitality and relief at the Fairest Cape. At Saxenburg we extend this tradition and invite you to visit our world.

Deep gravel with some clay but well drained. Trellised, partly irrigated.

Healthy grapes were harvested in the early mornings, on specifically identified cool mornings. Short skin contact, and pressed whilst still cool. The juice settled for one day, and the clear juice was fermented cold with 2 different yeast strains to enhance optimal flavour. It had long lees contact for complexity and did not go through Malolactic fermentation.

Food pairing

A well balanced wine that will complement a crispy bacon salad, sushi, fish dishes and most pasta dishes or to enjoy on its own.
