Cape Rock Wines is situated between the towns of Vredendal and Klawer, 300km north from Cape Town and 30 km inland from Doringbaai on the West Coast of South Africa. We grow a variety of red and white grapes, such as Syrah, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier and Colombard. The vineyards are located on a single 11-hectare farm just above the banks of the Olifants river floodplain.

We aim to make our wines in the simplest possible way, rather than disguising the origin of the grapes by making use of complicated modern winemaking equipment or techniques, chemical additions or new oak maturation in the cellar.

We mostly use our own grapes and add as little sulphur as possible during the winemaking process. We hand pick all our grapes and press with a small-batch pneumatic or very old champagne press. We use mostly free-run juice or wine and stop pressing before any harsh tannins are released, resulting in wines with a silky mouth feel that can be enjoyed from a young age. We try to make use of natural fermentation where possible, resulting in a broader spectrum of flavours in our wines.

  • GRAPES: Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Viognier

    The 2013 vintage was picked earlier than 2012 and this resulted in a more
    elegant wine with lovely pure floral and fruit flavours like melon, white peach,
    pear and apricot on the nose. The relatively high acidity keeps the wine fresh.
    We believe that it can be enjoyed on its own or with white meat, roast pork,
    cream based dishes or a variety of seafood dishes.
