Nestled between Elim and Cape Agulhas, and just 9km from the sea, lies the secluded Strandveld Vineyards. This wind-swept winery derives its name from the belt of land which spans the tempestuous tip of Africa’s southernmost coastline. At almost thirty five degrees below the equator, this region is characterised by severe winds, billowing mist and below average temperatures. A unique combination of maritime climate, alternating sites and diverse soil types work together to create the terroir which distinguishes the wines of Strandveld Vineyards.
It was in 1488 that Bartholomeu Diaz and his team of Portuguese sailors first laid eyes on this corner of the continent. Centuries later, in 2001, a group of enthusiastic wine lovers turned to the original navigation maps to seek out potential new vineyard sites, equally undeterred by the fierce storms and blustering gales that now give rise to the characteristic grapes and consequentially distinctive Strandveld Vineyards wines.

“A full-bodied wine with silky mouthfeel due to high extract. Notes of coriander spice and apricot blossom on the nose followed by ripe peach and almond flavours on the palate. The palate is rich but with good freshness distinctive to our cool climate.” – Winemaker
Pairs well with spicy foods which don’t contain too much chilli such as Thai curries, mild peri-peri prawns or chicken, Chinese food.
