About this Item

Bakermat, 2015
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Joostenberg, situated in Muldersvlei district in Stellenbosch, has belonged to the Myburgh family since 1879. Originally established by a Swedish settler in the late 1600’s, the farm contains an old ‘Cape Dutch’ Manor House which has been declared a national monument. The 5th generation of Myburgh family members now run the business.

Organic Certification
Both farmed and made according to organic practices, certified by ECOCERT (mostly Europe) and other organisations.
Certified organically grown grapes - no use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Use of certain cover crops, methods of soil care, and other specified vineyard care.
Wine made according to strict standards - use of approved, organic yeast, and no added sulfites or other specified additives. Does not imply that the wine is vegan (allows for specified fining agents (including egg whites) and enzymes). In certain regions this is extended to chaptalisation and acid addition.

Bakermat, meaning “birth-place” or “cradle” in Dutch, pays homage to Joostenberg, home of the Myburgh family for 6 generations. This is the premium red wine from the estate and every effort has been taken to ensure that it is a genuine expression of the Joostenberg terroir. Only 2384 Bottles produced. In order to optimize the influence of terroir the vineyards were managed according to organic principles (certified organic according to EU and US legislation).

Critics Ratings

‘Another successful, clever blend: 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Touriga Naçional, and Mourvèdre - latter replacing 2014 (4 stars, 87 pts)’s Merlot. More intensity and serious structure. Attractive already, but not too assertive, with lovely ripe fruit undominated by subtle oaking.’ - Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2018, 4.5* (92/100)

‘39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre and 12% Touriga Nacional. The nose shows striking perfumed character with notes of flowers and herbs as well as red and black berries. The palate shows good depth of fruit and freshness while being nicely grippy on the finish. Very flavoursome indeed.’ - WineMag.co.za - Signature Red Blends Report 2017, 92/100 (Top Wine of the Report)
