Since 1856 Zonnebloem has been crafting classic award winning wines. Our grapes are sourced from Stellenbosch, a classic wine growing region in South Africa, which enables us to continue producing wines of unwavering substance and quality.

in the vineyard : Annelie Viljoen (Viticulturist)
 The grapes were sourced from vineyards in the Devon Valley, Stellenbosch Kloof, Helderberg and Jonkershoek areas. Grown on slopes that face in south and south-westerly directions to ensure cooler microclimates, the vineyards yielded an average of 8 to 10 tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand in March at 25° Balling.

in the cellar : The Craft of Viniculture: Deon Boshoff (Cellar Master) / Bonny van Niekerk (Winemaker)
Fermentation on the skins took place for 10 to 12 days. More than half of the wine was matured in 300 litre French oak barrels, medium toasted and from a variety of coopers. The remaining portion of wine was left to mature in French and Hungarian oak staves in stainless steel tanks.
