Lot 338

Veenwouden
Classic, 1993
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Veenwouden is a Boutique Winery situated on the northern side of Paarl with sweeping views of the Klein Drakenstein Mountains. Once a family affair, Deon Van der Walt was the owner at the time,  Switzerland-based tenor, whilst brother Marcel was the winemaker and previously a professional golfer. The first vineyards being planted in 1989 and by 1993 they released their Bordeaux styled reds. These wines emerged from no-where to capture international attention and are some of the most consistent vintage wines found in SA. The Veenwouden wines are all in immaculate condition today and show a modernity that few SA wines achieved at the time. This maiden vintage is extremely rare.


'Standard-bearer, Bordeaux-style blend. Classically oaked/constructed; ’93 cabernet sauvignon with 21% merlot, 13% cabernet franc. Still fairly unyielding; glimpses of fine sweet-berry fruit presently tethered by firm dry tannin, but has inherent class, finesse. 900 cases.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 1996
