Shaw’s Mountain

We recently purchased this vineyard on the slopes of Shaw’s Mountain and set about grafting Chardonnay onto a hectare of Sauvignon Blanc vines to join the Pinot Noir already planted. South-facing and situated on shale and clay soils, the site mirrors the terroir in Hemel-en-Aarde while not technically falling within the region. The climate is marginally more moderate than nearby Kerksaal, being closer to the coast. 2020 will see our first full harvest from the site and early signs are suggesting it has much to offer. Shaw’s Mountain contributes to both the Peter Max Pinot Noir and The Agnes Chardonnay.
