Koelfontein

Ceres

I discovered the Koelfontein Chardonnay a couple of years ago by ordering a delicious bottle on the terrace of The Tulbagh hotel.

I had never heard of it – nor indeed any wine estate in Ceres, which is much better known as a fruit growing centre. The Conradie family, the seventh generation farmers who own Koelfontein, have abundant orchards, but they also own the...

Shiraz / Syrah  

Powerful, black-fruited, often aged in oak, syrah/Shiraz comes in varying styles but at the top (such as Hermitage) can be spectacular and very long-lived.

There is no question that Syrah is now the most fashionable red grape for new plantings in many New World countries, especially South Africa and Chile.

Koelfontein, Shiraz, Ceres, 2018

This terrific Shiraz, given 20 months in new French barrels, is spectacular and has garnered a slew of medals in the local wine competions: Veritas and Michelangelo golds and a double gold in the Vitis Vinifera. Youthful purple. Ripe black fruit and coffee aromatics. So bold and vibrant, a gorgeous sweet cassis gush, but also brightened by juicy acidity and backed by plentiful ripe tannins. Very long. Cries out for beef or lamb, grilled or roasted. Now-2025

The Conradie family, the seventh generation farmers who own Koelfontein, have abundant orchards, but they also own the only vineyard in the Ceres Plateau district, just six hectares split between Chardonnay and Shiraz on the steep, south facing slopes of the Gydo pass just north of Prince Albert Hamlet.

The family launched their own wine label in 2002. They currently employ Dewaldt Heyns, winemaker at famed Saronsberg in nearby Tulbagh and one of the elected Cape Winemasters Guild, to make these tiny production wines. The style is unabashedly new world, ripe, big and bold and well-oaked: we're excited to introduce this duo to the UK market.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
