About

Our picturesque Neethlingshof Wine Estate in the heart of the Stellenbosch Winelands is flanked by the Bottelary Hills and Papegaaiberg Mountains.

Along with the beautiful historic manor house, our estate is steeped in history which dates back to 1692 and distinguished by the beautiful avenue of stone pines.

It’s a place where soil, climate, and vines co-exist in perfect harmony. We have enviable soils and microclimates to allow us to choose the correct site; which results in pure expression of our unique terroir.

Our Estate is a member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative (BWI), highlighting our commitment to eco-sustainability. 28ha of the 110ha wine farm (under vine) is set aside for conservation and focusing on replanting the indigenous Renosterveld species to restore the natural balance in nature.

The Vineyards

Cloned from the French plant material and planted between 1997 and 2009, the vines are grafted onto Richter 99 and Richter 110 rootstocks and grow in Tukulu soils. The vines are vertically trellised on hedge systems of varying height according to their individual vigor. They receive supplementary irrigation through a drip system when necessary. The south-west facing vineyards are exposed to the cooling effect of False Bay breezes which protract ripening and make for the more concentrated intensity of flavour.

The Winemaking

The grapes were harvested by hand during the first week of February at between 22° and 23,5° Balling. After crushing and clarification by flotation, the juice was inoculated with selected dry yeasts and cool-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks between 13° and 15° C. Following the completion of the fermentation, the tanks were topped up and the wines left on their lees in order to gain in complexity before being blended and readied for bottling.

Winemaker’s Comments
