This Banhoek property in the heart of Stellenbosch has become one of SA’s most exciting to watch, under the deft touch of one of SA’s rising stars – Donovan Rall. Rall has a stellar reputation with his eponymous label, and in six years at Vuurberg his intricate, complex wines are receiving a surge of local and international interest. Brand new vintages just released – stock up and watch the awards pour in.
Based in the heart of the beautiful Elgin valley, Spioenkop derives its name from the similar topography to the infamous hill in KZN upon which the battle for “Spionkop” occurred during the Anglo-Boer War. To make great wine, so the saying goes, you have to know great wine. Who would know great wine better than a Master Sommelier, a qualification Spioenkop cellarmaster and viticulturist Koen Roose-Vandenbroucke doesn’t shout about but surely plays a role in the quality of wine achieved to date.
