Winemaker's Notes

The continued success of the Fleur du Cap range of wines is the result of a team approach at The Bergkelder that starts with meticulous vineyard selection and is driven by an overriding passion for winemaking and constant experimentation to create new generation of superior quality wines. The wines are shaped in perfect harmony with the forces of nature—Earth, Sun, Wind and Water—to capture the highly sought after qualities of varietal character and terroir.

This Pinotage displays aromas of cloves and vanilla on the nose. The palate is packed with berry flavors and features a long distinctive finish.

This wine is an ideal accompaniment to grilled lamb and poultry, spare ribs, pork roasts and game fish. It is perfect with classic Cape cuisine like Bobotie and Malay Curries, as well as spicy Mexican food.

I am by no means a wine expert, but I know what I like. I usually drink whites (chardonnays), but this red was soft, earthy and not so dry. It was not sweet, but offered hits of cherry and chocolate. Was wonderful with steak! We stumbled upon it at a wine tasting. Will definitely purchase again

At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV.
