The Story Behind Terroir Specific Wines
In 2006, Johann Rupert initiated the search for all vineyards in South Africa older than 35 years. Traditionally the South African wine industry depended on tonnage, meaning that the meager yields of older vines dictated them to be removed. What was left was some pretty spectacular pockets of vines tended by people who either kept them out of sentiment or foresight. Old vine wine guaranteeing intensity, texture and a real sense of place. Preserving them then is an act of social responsibility toward South African wine and the people who invested in them despite the odds.
The vineyards selected for the Cape of Good Hope range represent exceptional vineyard sites and some of the oldest vines in the country, lovingly tended to produce only the finest reflection of their terroir. These vines are a reflection of a countrywide search that was to spark a worldwide old vine movement.
