PUBLIC PROFILE

Who are we?

Nestled at the foot of the mountain after which it is named, Saronsberg wine estate is a contemporary addition to the rich heritage of Tulbagh valley. It was formed late in 2002 when Waveren and Welgegund - two farm portions of the historic Twee Jonge Gezellen - were purchased and combined to create a unique location for this progressive winery. Two months later a fire swept through the valley, destroying a portion of Saronsberg's vineyards and convincing all involved that initial plans to delay the construction of a cellar should be reconsidered.

The Saronsberg Range
In the Saronsberg range, this philosophy finds expression in bold wines with powerful fruit components integrated with well-structured tannins. Sourced from the mid-valley region of the farm, the grapes that form the foundation for Saronsberg wines typically offer exceptional flavour and colour concentration. This allows for gentle vinification that maximises the Saronsberg range's hallmark colour and flavour, without any of the harsh tannins normally associated with over-extraction. Instead, tannin structure comes from maturation in (at least) 90% new French oak - a necessity when working with wines of such fruit intensity. The result is a range of wines in balance: full-bodied, yet elegant.
