Fact Sheet

Winemaker's Notes

The historic Die Waghuis – or Guard House – on the foothills of the scenic Piketberg Mountain was erected in the 18th Century to serve as a lookout post and stands as an icon of South Africa’s rich and eventful history.

The vineyards were planted in 2012 on south-facing slopes with a unique row direction of east to south-west. The soils are mainly of terra-rossa  formation  with  a  high  percentage  of  shale,  providing a well-drained, cool environment for the roots to flourish. The bushvine Grenache is planted at the top of the hill with the trellised Shiraz and Mouvedre lower down.
