Bartinney Private Cellar is set on the dramatic slopes of the Botmaskop alongside the Helshoogte Pass overlooking the picturesque Banghoek Valley in Stellenbosch. Established in 1912, Bartinney has been in the Jordaan family since 1953. Now Rose and Michael Jordaan tend to the twenty-eight hectare farm, with a vision to create excellent wines and reawaken the charm of the historic land. Creating excellence in wine has not been a singular pursuit. Their belief is that every aspect must work in harmony: agriculture with nature, people with animals, sustainability with excellence. the winged figure depicted on each Bartinney bottle is called ‘Elevage’ and symbolises the French art of the selective maturing and ascension of a wine to its ultimate heights, unfurling its most noble traits. This idea is embodied in the team work, small-lot artisanal craft and gentle methods, relied upon at Bartinney to create excellence year-on-year.
This flagship, small-batch release, heroes the depth and maturity of the high-altitude vines, crafted from the estates best hand-selected blocks. As the name Skyfall alludes, these twenty-year-old Cabernet Sauvignon vines drift down from the Banghoek skyline.
