Floral & Fresh

After working several vintages at wineries in France, South Africa and California, Chris & Andrea chose to settle in the Swartland region of South Africa, firmly believing that the granite and schist based terroirs and old vineyards of the Swartland have the potential to produce truly great wine.

The Kloof Street range is all about freshness, balance and great drinkability. The Swartland Rouge is a Mediterranean style red blend based on Syrah with other Rhône varieties. This seductive blend of Southern Rhône varieties has a perfumed nose of violets, spice and purple fruit. The medium to full bodied, food-friendly palate is finely textured with firm but approachable tannins and a fresh, lingering finish.

This wine is excellent with grilled lamb, roast pork, and charred broccoli rabe.
