Saronsberg can be found in the Upper Breede River Valley of the beautiful town of Tulbagh. Saronsberg is made up of two farms called Waveren and Welgegund. The farm formed part of the Twee Jonge Gezellen until it was divided between the two Krone brothers in the 1950s. It was at this time that the farm was renamed after the mountain, Saronsberg, on whose slopes their vines now lay.

The first Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested in 2004 and won many awards. Winemaker Dewaldt was awarded membership to the Cape Wine Makers’ Guild.

The estate has three ranges: The Saronsberg Range – full-bodied, elegant wines; The Provenance Range – a more accessible range with lighter wines and The Nick & Forti’s Range.

 

A great note to end The Wine School year.

Rainbow’s End – Cabernet Franc 2016

“Elegant and unique single-clone Cabernet Franc from the Banghoek high above Stellenbosch. Awarded ‘Top Six’ in the SA Cabernet Franc Challenge 2017.” 

 

-Froggit & Vonkel

“This Rainbows End Cabernet Franc is fantastic. Anton makes some of the best red wines in Stellenbosch and it is his Cabernet Franc that he is most proud of, believing his vineyards have the ideal microclimate for this variety. Anton also produces other excellent award-winning red wines including blends, straight Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, plus a superb Merlot.

Very pure, medium-bodied with red fruit flavours, very smooth and beautifully balanced. Subtle oak ageing for 12 months, then bottled unfiltered to retain all the flavour and natural goodness. Great wine.”
