The De Wet family have farmed at Excelsior Estate, in the Robertson wine valley, since 1697.
Wine has always been made on the estate. It is now the most important crop on the farm and Excelsior exports wine to over 20 countries. The farm has 220ha planted with noble cultivars; Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
There are also small plantings of blending cultivars such as Petit Verdot and Viognier. Their aim is to produce full-bodied wines that display intense fruit.
They use strict vineyard practices to ensure a healthy, well ripened crop. They can use chemicals very sparingly thanks to the dry Robertson climate. When they are ready, our grapes are picked by hand which allows greater quality control.
An enticing bouquet of passion fruit, lime and ripe fig leads to complex flavors of citrus, herbs and gooseberry on the palate. A bracing acidity and long fruity finish balance out this invigorating, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc.
