Region: Cape Agulhas, Overberg
Caroline Rillema is a longstanding fine wine merchant in Cape Town, who has been selling wine here since opening her business in 1997. She and her husband Ray grow Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon on their Baardskeerdersbos vineyard close to Gansbaai and Elim. They were pioneers in the area in 2003, following on the heels of Lomond, situated 10km away. Their property is a mere 3,5ha in size, and the vineyard is 1.86ha, with only eight rows of Semillon. Most of the grapes go into their Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon blend, but in 2020, 100 litres were bottled seperately. Caroline and Ray do all the viticullture, and the wines are made at Black Oystercatcher Winery in Elim.
Only 135 bottles of this wine are available.
