Wildeberg is our small farm in Franschhoek. Wildeberg Terroirs is an expression of the most exciting vineyard blocks we work with in the wider Coastal Region, in this case 45+ year old bush vines from Paarl.

A broad, savoury, complex nose with ripe stonefruit and citrus, aromas of straw, saffron and baked earth. Generous and textural with apricot, green plum and grapefruit, the richness of fruit balanced by tangy freshness and a taut, mineral seam on the long, focussed finish.

The Earth’s mantle thrusts up above the gentle town of Franschhoek, a wild slice of untamed mountain on which sits a farm named Wildeberg. An established wine region for some 350 years, sensible generations never thought to plant a vine here until a happy band of idealists recently craned their necks up at this hillside and, dizzy with hope, decided to give it a go. Franschhoek is on the very edge of the south-eastern corner of the Cape’s venerable Coastal Region, indeed Wildeberg’s property border runs over the top of the mountain where the Coastal Region gives way to the baboon-strewn road to Grabouw and the wider Western Cape.

The Wildeberg wines express the most captivating Franschhoek Valley fruit. In our Wildeberg Terroirs bottlings we look beyond our home to a clutch of exceptional sites of other origin.

A mountain rich in metaphor with the visual heft to flatter any wine, releases of Wildeberg and Terroirs express our continued purpose – exceptional wines of place, however humble the origin. If the abiding memory of our wines remains a textural sense of place then we are portraying the Cape as hoped.

Chenin Blanc from selected old, dry farmed bush vines, grown on Table Mountain granite outcrops that surface in Paarl’s otherwise deep sandy loams. The 2022 comes 100% from Eenzaamheid (meaning loneliness), planted in 1977. Hand-harvested and naturally fermented back at the farm at Wildeberg, then aged for 12 months in new and older French barrels. As little work as possible is required in order to capture the site-specific energy of this fruit.

Grilled fish and white meats. Also great with asparagus.
