The naturally tannic Semillon cuts a clean, citric swathe through the generous and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc - a tight and lively marriage with wonderful breadth on the finish. Asparagus and lime with hints of peach, yet soft on the palate.
Pioneers of Fair Trade, Koopmanskloof Vineyards date back to 1777. The name depicts the profession and location of an indigenous community who embraced fair trade with the first European ships to visit the Cape of Good Hope during the 16th century. Koopmans is Dutch for trader and 'Kloof' is a Ravine. The former owner Stevie Smit, set aside 98 ha of his farm as a fynbos reserve and started the Vineyard Trail - a 24 km walk through vineyards and mountain heath along the ridge of the Bottelary Hills. Adding to the outdoor experience, the 'Berghut' was built in 1983, situated on Koopmanskloof hills, overlooking the beautiful Cape Wine lands.
In the Vineyard
