Blaauwklippen Zinfandel Reserve 2011

in the vineyard : The vines were planted in 1982, Block Padstall 1, on south facing slopes in sandy duplex soil. We use the six wire trellising system and meticulous viticulture practices like bunch halving and intense canopy management is standard practice. No irrigation is allowed. This is a single vineyard wine, single vineyard being the smallest, most exclusive geographic terroir selection in South Africa.

The Blaauwklippen Reserve Single Vineyard Collection is the ultimate expression of selected terroir blocks.

about the harvest: Only the finest grapes are hand selected.
