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.

Trellised, single irrigation per annum, heavy ‘vendange Verte’ for low crop, and uniform ripeness early in season.

French Oak 300L barrels. 15% New.

Harvesting at optimum ripeness, and then the fermentation is in open-top fermentation tanks. Fermented with a selected yeast culture at 28°C. Punching down and pump over three times daily. Pressed early with little skin contact after fermentation.

Food pairing

Enjoyed with game meat, curry dishes, or with a creamy wild mushroom risotto.
