Zandvliet Wine Estate, situated on the outskirts of the Robertson Valley’s Wine Route and within close proximity to the famed Route 62, which connects the Western and Eastern Cape regions in South Africa.
The story of Zandvliet is all about Shiraz, being one of South Africa’s first Shiraz producers ; with a history that extends back to first plantings during the 1870’s. Time honoured tradition balanced with genuine investment ensures the highest quality of wines and pure luxury in a glass.
The magical key to our success lies locked within the soils of Zandvliet. Known as calcareous Karoo, with a red clay underlay, dotted with pockets of chalky limestone; this is what we call Kalkveld, and it’s the driving force behind our classical wines. Firm acidity, concentrated flavours and mineral traces are delicately managed from vineyard to cellar. Our Hill of Enon wines, derived from a very special block on the estate, is an ancient geologically anomalous rocky outcrop with limestone patches dating back to the Upper Jurassic period. This piece of history is drinkable in our Hill of Enon Shiraz and Chardonnay wines.
All of the Zandvliet wines are of the kind we ourselves drink and admire, we consider them artisan hand crafted wines, cellar matured so if you want to enjoy them now or saviour on a later occasion – the choice is yours.
