Description

Stellenzicht Cellar Masters Release Shiraz is made from a small selection of barrels carefully chosen by the Stellenzicht cellar master. Stellenzicht fits comfortably into its icon status, achieved over a decade by a consistent stream of award-winning wines of unsurpassed quality. Their Shiraz wines are legendary while their Pinotages are fast catching up. The origins of Stellenzicht can be traced back to 1692  when it was part of a larger property granted to its first owner Barendt Hendrikse. The farm was bought by international banker and financier Hans-Joachim Schreiber in 1981. In 1999 he entered into a joint joint venture with Distillers Corporation which today forms part of Distell with whom he remains in partnership to to this day. The same partnership, called Lusan, also owns four other wine estates – Le Bonheur, Uitkyk, Alto and Neethlingshof.

Winemaker Guy Webber (who has been at Stellenzicht since 1998) ascribes their success to the farm’s superb terroir, situated in what is locally referred to as the Wineland’s Golden Triangle, but his skill as a winemaker definitely plays a significant role. The Golden Triangle is a tract of land flanked by the Helderberg and Stellenbosch Mountain, between Stellenbosch and the False Bay Coast. The terroir here is extremely well suited to the cultivation of the highest quality wine grapes. Stellenzicht Cellar Masters Release Shiraz is 100% Shiraz is sourced from vineyard planted between 1989 and 1991 which have a west and north-west aspect and are composed of decomposed granite and Table Mountain sandstone soils.
