In The Vineyard
Situated in the Muldersvlei area near Stellenbosch, Hoopenburg lies at the foot of Simonsberg mountain. The average temperature during the growing season is between 18 and 19 °C, due to the cooling winds from the south. The well-drained soil is rich in clay and limestone.

20 500 Cabernet Sauvignon bush vines were planted between 1993 and 1997 after careful soil preparation. The grapes ripen at the end of the harvesting season.
About The Harvest
The grapes were harvested manually in small crates at optimum ripeness.
