Located 160km North of Cape Town the Robertson Valley lies in the folds of the Riviersonderence and Langeberg Mountains where the Breede River meanders towards the Cape`s southern coastline. The chilly southern ocean breezes are funnelled up the valley and give cooling respite to the vines throughout the growing season. Quite high concentrations of lime are found in the soil and this makes the area exceptionally fine for white grape varieties.

This superb family owned wine estate is one of the old farms in Robertson and is situated in the Klaas Voogds area, eight kilometres east of old town of Robertson. The farm was established in 1864 by Alwyn Burger, and today it is under the stewardship of the 6th generation of the Burger family, Kobus. He oversee the winemaking process with a real hands-on approach both for the viticulture and vinification to produce Rietvallei`s prestigious wines.

This Rietvallei estate is internationally acclaimed for making one of the finest fortified Red Muscadels in South Africa. Many of the bush vines are over 80 years old and yield tiny but intensely flavoured berries that create a superb fragrant dessert wine. The bouquet is enticing with a perfumed Muscat aroma, which follows on the palate with complex raisiny sweetness and rose petal fragrance. The acidity complements the wine and makes it easy to enjoy this intensely sweet and aromatic wine.

Rietvallei

This is a very fruity but dry Chenin Blanc expressing fresh citrus flavours together with lovely floral aromas of dried apple and musk sweets. The palate is crispy as a result of a good balancing acidity, complimented with a lingering aftertaste.

white wine Rietvallei Natural Chardonnay

Rietvallei

Vin à la robe paille très claire et brillante. Le nez est explosif avec des arômes de citron frais et de fleurs d'oranger. En bouche, le vin est fruité et élégant. Le palais révèle des saveurs de pomme verte. Le vin a du corps et remplit bien la bouche. Bon équilibre avec une belle acidité.
