STEENBERG

Located in South Africa's premier wine growing region of Constantia Valley, Steenberg is the oldest farm in the region, boasting a colourful history dating back to 1682.

TASTING NOTES

With a delicate green golden appearance, the 2016 vintage promises a fresh array of wonderful fruit aromas. Papaya, melon and limes jostle for attention aside freshly sliced Granny Smith apples and touches of oak spice. Sourced as it was from an array of mature vineyards across the Western Cape, the wine is richly layered with golden ripe fruit and finely balanced texture. The...

TASTING NOTES

The wine’s appearance is marked by a vibrant, dense and purple hue. The nose exhibits berry fruit aromas of mulberries and blueberries, subtly framed by vanilla spice and earthy notes. Gentle structure and finesse combine to make the 2014 so attractive. It has good weight and richness, with layers of flavour, yet there is a really classic element to the...

micro-climate analyses, the winery embarked on a complete replanting programme. Of the 62 hectares of vineyards, over 70% are planted with two white varieties: the flagship Sauvignon Blanc (45%), and Semillon. Steenberg was one of the first and is still one of only a handful of farms in the Cape to cultivate Nebbiolo.

The icon wines of the estate are Semillon and the extremely limited release Magna Carta Sauvignon Blanc, the Bordeaux style white blend. Their philosophy that 'wines are grown in the vineyard then cared for in the winery' is born out by the excellent quality of their wines and has deservedly earned them the reputation as one of the top wine farms in the country.
