Dry Land Rossouws Heritage is one of the best examples of some of the fabulous white blends emerging from South Africa. A blend of Chenin, Roussanne, Viognier, Clairette from old unirrigated vines in the Perdeberg area. Textured, layered and complex. A truly delicious treat.
PERDEBERG WINERY located in Paarl in the heart of the Boland of the Western Cape, enjoys one of the finest wine-growing regions of the Cape. Established as a co-operative in 1941, this now privately owned winery lies at the foot of the magnificent Paardeberg Mountain, named after the scores of Cape Mountain Zebra that once roamed this beautiful mountainside. From a domestic perspective, Perderberg is the highest awarded winery in South Africa. The unique composition of the vineyards defines Perdeberg’s inimitable style covering multiple micro-climates, 75% of which are un-irrigated, whilst 50% are un-trellised, yielding a very low average of 7.8 tons per hectare. Cellar Marster, Albertus Louw, reveals “These dry land bush vines create far better fruit concentration than vines subjected to unnatural vineyard practices, like irrigation. The structure and complexity in these smaller berries bring intense colour, added body and passionate flavours. At Perdeberg Winery, we prefer to set trends rather than follow them and we never compromise the exceptional quality of our wines”.
