About

Winemaker Trizanne Barnard has years of international winemaking experience. Her passion lies in the Western Cape, making wines sourced from the most extreme vineyards and blending them to perfection. Trizanne seeks out grapes from wind-ravaged vineyards in Elim, the old expanses of the Overberg Highlands, from dryland bush vines in the warm Swartland and from the high slopes of the Piekernierskloof. They then all come together under Trizanne's watchful eye to create wines full of flavour, tannin and texture. Viticulture- Vines are grown on some "extreme" vineyards": The Drift Estate in Overberg Highlands, where it is very cold in Winter and cool in Summer, vineyards are perched perilously on the slopes of Akkedisberg, pounded by wind. Slow growing and low yield. The Leeuwenkuil Family Vineyards, where it is very hot and arid. Winemaking- Some varieties are vinified separately, others co-fermented. Mostly fermented in open top tanks, 15 to 50% as whole bunches. Hand plunged 5 or 6 times daily. A long wild fermentation. Aged in 225l Oak, mostly French for 18 months. Oak Treatment- Time: 11 Months; Type: Mostly in French 225l; % oaked: 100; % new oak: 10.

  • Tasting Notes:  

    An intriguing, inviting blend of red summer fruits, spring fynbos flowers, Indian spice and just a hint of toasty oak on the nose. The palate is surprisingly decadent, rich, with almost creamy tannins. You’ll find raspberries, blackberries, ripe plum and a hint of pepper, spice and leather on the palate. It is balanced, with just the tiniest prod of refreshing, salty acid, like a playful poke of Neptune’s trident.
