Multiple award-winning 6th generation producer owned by the Nel family, who established the Calitzdorp district in the Klein Karoo and gradually built it to world-wide fame for the quality of its Port-styled wines produced outside of the Duoro valley. Cape Wine Master and Cape Winemakers Guild member, Carel Nel, is extremely knowledgeable about the category of Port, and is crafting (now along with the next generation) a consistently brilliant style of fortifieds from authentic Portuguese varieties that adapt well to this warm and dry region.

‘Distinctive & age-worthy version, classy ’01 has fynbos scents and beautifully moderated richness. Boosted by maturing Touriga vines & ungrafted ±30 yr-old tinta (blend also including dash Souzao). As always, sugar, alc & acid well-balanced for edgier, gripper style – with elegance. Exciting long-term potential.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2004, 4.5*
