Wynhuis Restaurant, Bloemendal Wine Estate
The 300 year old farm Bloemendal is nestled in the heart of the fertile Durbanville region.
The farm's first cellar was completed in 1920 Concentrating on the noble cultivars, the previous owner sacrificed quantity in favour of quality, gaining a reputation his "boutique" style wines, known as the "the waterlily label".
Although blessed with an abundance of sunshine in summer, Durbanville remains one of the coolest wine-growing regions in South Africa, with a miro-climate ideally suited to the noble cultivars.
By contrast, chilly winters, lashed by rains chilled by the South Easter, provide deep rest for the vines in preparation for the following season.
All Bloemendal wines are grown, made and bottled on the Estate.
These wines are the result of a combination of modern cellar technology, atmospheric controlled barrel maturation cellars, limited quantity-high quality grapes and a personal touch.
The following wines are made:
