Notes

Very intense ruby deepening to an opaque heart; densely layered fruit enfolds tightly woven tannins and spicy oak with ease, creating a richly textured mouthful; delivers great pleasure already but has the poise and power to richly reward 4 to 6 years of cellaring. 50 % Cabernet Sauvignon 35 % Pinotage15 % Merlot. The three cultivars were vinified and aged in small French oak barrels separately. They were blended together after 24 months in French oak.

Details

Kaapzicht is situated up in the Bottelary Hills with magnificent views towards Table Mountain. The farm was first mentioned in 1712 and was purchased by the Steytler family in 1946. The 174 ha estate has 135 ha of vineyards planted on mainly north facing slopes. An ambitious planting programme is seeing the replacement of the Chenin vineyards with top quality red varieties while the old gnarled Pinotage Bush Vines are given tender care and attention. The ever modest, dedicated family team consists of Danie making the wine, his brother George the viticulturist and Danie's wife Yngvild responsible for sales and marketing. They all live on the farm with a menagerie of animals and an open house to friends and family. Success could not have come to nicer or more hard working people.

Region In October 1679, Simon Van der Stel and his men entered the Hottentots Holland Basin for the first time. After travelling throughout the region, they came across a small valley full of fertile agriculture lands and declared it fit for farming. He named the area Stellenbosch. A year later, the Stellenbosch Colony's numbers had increased such that new farms had to be allocated, and thus the Bottelary region was born. The origins of the Bottelary name can be traced back to the old Dutch word 'Bottelarj' which was the storeroom or cellar that held all the food and bottles aboard the ship during travels. The first vines were planted during the early 1700's and today, the Bottelary region is renowned for producing world class red and white wines. The Kaapzicht Estate farm was acquired by the Steytler family in 1946, when Major David Charles Steytler bought what was then called the Rozendal farm.
