DuVon is a beautiful family-run, fruit and wine farm, situated near Robertson in the De Goree district that forms part of the Valley of Wine and Roses.
The name DuVon symbolizes the merging of the two sole co-owners: Armand du Toit and his uncle, Alex von Klopmann, together they lovingly restored the old wine cellar (dating back to 1940) into a boutique winery and a wedding venue that offers all new bridal couples the perfect opportunity to customize their wedding to personal taste, preference and needs.
The farm offers exquisite wines that may be enjoyed while sitting beside the picture-perfect swimming pool of the self-catering units that forms part of the old farmhouse, with a view that stretches over 100 hectares of vineyards and beyond…
Dry-Crisp, Medium-light bodied Sauvignon Blanc with fruity tropical guava and gooseberry flavours and aromas.
We are proud to say that we bottled our fruity and crisp Sauvignon Blanc this year. With only a single block to harvest from, there is no room for error. Fermented at low temperatures to ensure optimal flavours and aroma development.
As for all our wines, the grapes for the Shiraz 2009 were hand selected to ensure optimal ripeness and flavours. The grapes were destalked and cooled down for 24 hours before fermentation. We ferment our red wines in open-tanks to give the wine the perfect balance between tannins, flavours and colour. This wine were aged for 24 months in a combination of 2/3 French oak and 1/3 American oak Barrels which leads to total elegance with a bit of dominant aromas.
