Joostenberg is a fifth-generation family business situated in the Muldersvlei district of Stellenbosch.The climate is Mediterranean and is characterized by cold, wet winters and warm, dry summers. Annual rainfall is about 650mm. The relative proximity to the cold ocean, about 30km equidistant from Table Bay and False Bay, results in regular cool sea breezes that assist in moderating the high summer temperatures. Soils are predominantely multi-layered, with a heavy clay subsoil and topsoil that varies between decomposed granite and Malmesbury shale. The planted varietals include Chenin Blanc, Viognier and Roussanne on the white side and Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah/Shiraz, Touriga Nacional and Mourvedré on the red side. The current area under vine is 30ha.
Named for the first Myburgh to farm at Joostenberg – Philipus Albertus Myburgh; this is a classically styled Cabernet leaning towards the Old World.
