Who are we?
- Yonder Hill covers some 13 hectares of rich Oakleaf and Clovelly soil. Vineyards are planted, predominantly, on the northern slopes of the farm and comprise two main cultivars: Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot feature as well. Maritime breezes in the early afternoon greatly influence the ripening process and the grapes are harvested as long as three weeks later than they are in Stellenbosch, a short distance away. The cellar was built in 1993, but greatly modernised four years later. The barrels, of French oak, are kept underground to allow for gravity-feeding and the cellar can house up to 800 of these containers, each with a capacity of 225 litres. All three red wines produced at Yonder Hill - the Nicola, Inanda and Merlot - are matured here.
Community Manager @Yonder Hill: New winemaker releases next vintages at Yonder Hill. Experienced winemaker Abé Beukes, who took over the winemaking reins at Helderberg winery Yonder Hill in January this year, hasn’t been resting on his considerable laurels for the past ten months. With four new wines just released or close to release date, he invited a group of media and experienced tasters to share an intimate preview of bottled and barrel cellar wines with him. http://bit.ly/1w5zg1e
