Making wine runs in the family at Diemersdal. Six generations of winemakers with one passion have made fine wines at the Estate since the 1800’s. Today, Diemersdal is renowned for its award-winning range of red and white wines enjoyed locally and exported to the far corners of the globe.
Diemersdal wines are the perfect expression of the distinct terroir of the Durbanville Wine Valley, one of the oldest wine regions in the Cape. The diverse soils and slopes provide the optimum conditions for making premium-quality wines with prominent varietal character. The dry land vineyards develop concentrated flavours, uniformly ripened by the cooling sea-breezes from the Atlantic Ocean.
This legendary wine is the first made by Thys Louw after joining father Tienie at Diemersdal. The then fledgling young winemaker was only given access to eight rows of vines within a premium Sauvignon Blanc vineyard. Quality of fruit and the talent of the winemaker lead to a captivating wine that has today become the stuff of legend, still made from those first eight rows.
