Swartland is currently one of the 'Rising star' areas in South Africa. Many Rhône grapes grow very well in the warmer climate. Kloovenburg makes a very sympathetic Shiraz in combination with Grenache. Literally also a Rhône look-a-like!

Aromas of red berries and spices spring from the nose and lead to a rustic wine, with a mix of red and black fruits with a solid backbone and beautifully fruity on the aftertaste. Drink this wine in the summer with a nice barbecue and in the winter with a nice roast!

 

 

Kloovenburg Wine & Olives
Kloovenburg vineyards stretch along the lower contours of Kasteelberg (which translates as Castle Mountain), offering a diverse collection of soils, altitudes and different slopes. Of the farm's 300 hectares, 110 are under wine grapes, the best 30% of which are reserved for making Kloovenburg's own wines. The soil is mainly Malmesbury schist, with strong loamy soil on the higher ground. The sandier loam lower down the slopes are supplemented by the area's rich Hutton soil. This varied selection of soils lends itself to planting proportions of 60% red and 40% white, comprising of the following cultivars: Shiraz, the most planted cultivar, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Novelle, Chenin Blanc, Colombar, Pinot Noir, Mourvedre and Petit Verdot. Our Sauvignon Blanc is the highest block on the farm, 360 m above sea level, providing perfect conditions for growing a cool-climate varietal.
