Vloekskoot | Sauvignon Blanc (Wooded)

Bartho is very proud that his efforts were soundly rewarded with this wine, fetching the highest price ever paid for Sauvignon Blanc on the Auction two years in a row. (R800 per bottle).

“It is my baby. After years of trials with different terroir, barrels from different coopers, wood from different forests, types of wood, barrel sizes, roasting intensities, the grain of the wood, age of the barrels and time spent in barrel, my first wooded Sauvignon Blanc was released in 2008. I exchanged 225 litres for 500-litre barrels and new wood for older wood. The right barrel age, roasting intensity and time in barrel, produced a very satisfactory final result: a Diners Club Winemaker of the Year Award, a Platter’s 5 stars, ’93 from Tim Atkin (MW, UK), ’92 Lauren Buzzeo (Wine Enthusiast (USA), ’94 Christian Eedes (RSA) and ’96 Miguel Chan (RSA).”

This wine is extremely limited and only 34 x 6 bottle cases goes on auction once a year at the Cape Wine Makers Guild Auction

Professore | Cape Blend

Bartho wanted to create a wine in honour of two of the greatest pioneers in South African viticultural history, Prof. Abraham Izak Perold and Prof. Christiaan Johannes Orffer.

“I am quite sure this unique style of wine has never been made in the world. This is a true Cape-blend, consisting of Pinotage, Nouvelle and Roobernet. Pinotage is a red cultivar, a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsaut created by Prof. Perold, Nouvelle is a white variety created by Prof. Orffer by crossing Ugni Blanc and Crouchen Blanc, and Roobernet is a red variety also created by Prof. Orffer by crossing Alicante Bouschet and Cabernet Sauvignon”.
