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.nFor 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.

Old and new clones trellised, no irrigation, Summer pruning for the best fruit selection and low production.

300 litre French and American oak barrels. 50/50 (100% new)

Hand picked grapes from 2 vineyards. fermented with Shiraz-friendly yeast to express maximum cultivar and vintage character. 30 Days skin contact was allowed and malolactic fermentation with bâtonnage in new French and American oak barrels where it remained for 3 months without SO2. Thereafter SO2 added and matured a further 21 months in the same barrels without racking.
