A fabulous blend of shiraz and pinotage from the Sumaridge vineyards in the Hemel-en-Aarde valley, close to Hermanus that is now considered to be where many of the finest South African wines are made. The proximity to the sea ensures cool winds to balance the heat which the traditional inland wine growing areas lack. This is their ‘showtime’ red wine aged in new oak for 18 months with over six years of bottle age.

The wine is close in style to a Northern Rhône with the pinotage, South Africa’s native varietal giving the wine that extra backbone and density of flavour. A gorgeous wine that you must try if you haven’t already - highly recommended by all of us.

- Esme Johnstone, Co-Founder of FromVineyardsDirect

PS - Sumaridge won the award of best vineyard of the year in South Africa in 2018 by the Luxury Travel Guide (LTG).

How does the wine taste? Customer Reviews (1)
Deep in colour with an expressive plummy character and a rich, spicy, appeal. Big, bold black fruit, with notes of cinnamon and liquorice, and aromas of woodsmoke, and dark liqueur chocolate. Chewy, but ripe tannins with warm, spiced bramble fruit. Rich and powerful, but also fresh and very well-balanced. A great effort from the talented Walter Pretorius.

Ooooh Hemel is a place en Aarde
