Stellenrust was established in 1928 and has ever since produced some of the most superb quality wines that the Stellenbosch region from South Africa can offer. It consists of about 400ha (200ha planted) of which half is stretched over the Golden Triangle area of Stellenbosch, internationally recognised for some of the best red wine soil in South Africa.
The other half is situated high up in the Bottelary Hills, renowned for its cool climate and late afternoon sea breezes swooping in from Cape Town to nurture both excellent white and red wines. Stellenrust boasts today with being one of the largest family-owned wine estates in South Africa carrying through generations of winemaking skills and the legacy of our motto ‘where excellence meets winemaking’ put forward in every bottle.
Grapes for this wine is harvested from a 56-year-old single vineyard of Chenin Blanc on the slopes of the Bottelary Hills, hence the number on the front of the bottle referring to the age of the vines in the year the wine was made.
