Our oldest Chenin Blanc vineyard was used to make this wine. It was planted in 1982 and for the first 20 years its fruit was sent to the local co-op and used for rather modest dry white blends. To be honest it’s an ugly, gnarly looking vineyard and year after year we contemplated its removal, but as soon as we started making our own wine on the farm we recognized its quality. We now care for this vineyard lovingly every year. The name is derived from the Afrikaans saying “die agteros kom ook in die kraal” (the hind ox also gets there)…..the vineyard took a long time to prove itself and now it’s our favourite vineyard.

The Small Batch Collection wines are made in miniscule quantities and allow the winemaker and his team to explore various winemaking techniques, grape varietals and vineyards. Sometimes he likes to push the winemaking boundaries a bit (the revolutionary process) and sometimes it’s all about figuring out the best way to capture the pure essence of a specific vineyard. This is the second release of Touriga Nacional at Joostenberg. Only 606 bottles were made.

Our Syrah is characterized by ripe berry and savoury aromas, and a slight smoky perfume. The wine is full-bodied and ripe with typical spice and peppery flavours. The finish is dominated by fine, yet firm tannins.
