Hermanuspietersfontein Swartskaap 2015


This winery, the only one in premium, ocean cooled Sondagskloof, is top rated by South African wine expert John Platter. And for good reason. This glorious, silky, full bodied Cab Franc, aged in French barriques, is their take on a Cape Cheval Blanc!

Named after the founder of Walker Bay’s prized town Hermanus, Hermanus Pieters, Hermanuspietersfontein is one of the most exciting wineries in this part of South Africa. It’s the only one in the Sondagskloof subregion, just inland from the coast, and ocean cooled. This and the altitude of the vineyards, up to 300 metres, accounts for the elegance and freshness of their wines. That said, this is a full bodied red, pure Cabernet Franc (like Bordeaux’s Cheval Blanc) and the only single varietal wine in their range. Hence the name Swartskaap (black sheep). For a taste of the best of the best from South Africa, this is the wine to choose. Aged in new and one-fill French oak barriques for 18 months, it’s a beautifully nuanced red that will age.

"Wonderful bouquet of herbs and spices. A nice palate of red fruits, berries and vanilla. Sumptuous" Online Review
