About

Mooiplaas Wine Estate and Private Nature Reserve boast a pristine natural beauty. Owned and managed by Tielman and Louis Roos, the Mooiplaas vineyards lie on steep slopes of ancient mineral rich soils in the Bottelary Hills of Stellenbosch, overlooking Cape Town.

Mooiplaas is a historic and traditional working wine estate, bought by Nicolaas Roos in 1963. He was joined by his two sons Tielman, viticulturist, (1980) and Louis, winemaker (1983). They celebrated 50 years on the farm in 2013. The history of the farm dates back to 1806, with the manor house on the estate – a national monument – an impressive example of Cape Dutch architecture.

Tielman and Louis produce a range of environmentally friendly wines rooted in tradition and artisan techniques to reflect the unique terroir.

Cool breezes from the Atlantic ocean make the site perfect for Sauvignon blanc. The vineyard shows vigorous growth and supplementary irrigation is performed when necessary. Training method: 5- wire trellis system
  • Soil Types: Oakleaf, high potential soil
  • Harvest date: 10 and 13 Feb 2017. Harvested by hand.
  • Yield: 60hl- and 10 tonnes per hectare

In the Cellar

  • Extremely dry year, but still an excellent crop (see the grape analysis). An outstanding vintage, no heat waves, and low night temperatures together with the dry summer
  • provided healthy and flavourful grapes, almost no botrytis, some raisins. Three to four-hour skin contact, juice cleaned by settling. 100% free run juice. Wine lees re-montage performed twice a week for 6 months in order to extract more flavor and body.
