STELLENRUST PREMIUM RANGE
Stellenrust Cabernet Sauvignon
Premium Cabernet Sauvignon - In our opinion, Cabernet Sauvignon, still strongly holds the crown as ‘king of the grapes’ and has a very special place in Stellenbosch.
Stellenrust Chenin Blanc
Stellenrust Premium Chenin Blanc - Blended from multiple older bush vine vineyards this Chenin is an overperformer within its class and a benchmark for the South African export market of Chenin Blanc.
Stellenrust Premium Merlot - Merlot is probably one of the most difficult grape varieties to grow worldwide. This is why we take extra care in the vineyards to make this wine on the vines, rather than in the cellar. Harvesting time in accordance with climate and season is of ultra importance.
Stellenrust Premium Pinotage - Pinotage is one of the grapes showing the most potential in South Africa. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if it is grown and vinified correctly, it becomes an interesting wine with depth and character able to compete with any of the other noble varieties.
Stellenrust Sauvignon Blanc
Stellenrust Sauvignon Blanc - As tradition has taught us, we still perform a sectional harvest on our Sauvignon Blanc. A third is picked at 18 Balling (greener flavors), a third at 20 Balling, and a third at 23 Balling (more tropical flavors). These three harvests are fermented separately to create three tanks capturing all the characteristics this enchanting grape can offer.
Stellenrust Premium Shiraz - This is probably the wine where the extent of the diversity between two of our different farms comes to light best. The Bottelary Shiraz has always been known for phenolic sweetness and ripe flavors whereas Helderberg fruit is often denser and extracted.
