VINEYARDS

THE VINEYARDS

Kloovenburg vineyards stretch along the lower contours of Kasteelberg (which translates as Castle Mountain), offering a diverse collection of soils, altitudes and different slopes. Of the farm’s 300 hectares, 110 are under wine grapes, the best 30% of which are reserved for making Kloovenburg’s own wines. Kloovenburg vineyards stretch along the lower contours of Kasteelberg (which translates as Castle Mountain), offering a diverse collection of soils, altitudes and different slopes. Of the farm’s 300 hectares, 110 are under wine grapes, the best 30% of which are reserved for making Kloovenburg’s own wines. The soil is mainly Malmesbury schist, with strong loamy soil on the higher ground. The sandier loam lower down the slopes are supplemented by the area’s rich Hutton soil.

This varied selection of soils lends itself to planting proportions of 60% red and 40% white, comprising of the following cultivars: Shiraz, the most planted cultivar, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Novelle, Chenin Blanc, Colombar, Pinot Noir, Mourvedre and Petit Verdot.

Our Sauvignon Blanc is the highest block on the farm, 360 m above sea level, providing perfect conditions for growing a cool-climate varietal. In 2011, we planted bushvine Grenache, Mourvedre, Shiraz and Carignan and in August 2015 we are planning to extend our portfolio with Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Verdello .

Future plantings will include Shiraz with exiting new clone variations.
