The Clementine vineyards climb the hillsides near the wild Atlantic coast of South Africa’s Western Cape, a land where it’s possible to produce high quality wines.
The landscape has changed and interspersed with the fruit trees and the distinctively low, crouching shapes of bush vines. The cool breezes that come up from the coast give great conditions for grapes to ripen in, much cooler than inland areas. This lets the grapes ripen slowly and gives them time to develop complex flavours.
The Founder’s Reserve range has been carefully selected to showcase the high quality of wines from this cooler up-and-coming region, with 99% of the fruit coming from bush vines, which give lower yields of more intensely flavoured fruit.
