It took a lot of work to revive this vineyard back to its former glory, with the removal of the surrounding alien trees and a lot of back-breaking work due to the vineyard’s uncomfortable location. Yet, the vine has given back with thanks. While the first harvest in 2018 was 2.3 tonnes per hectare, this year’s harvest was 6 tonnes per hectare, further entrenching Jaco and Tremayne’s steadfast belief in the long-term endurance of varietals like Chenin Blanc.
Tremayne Smith, the acclaimed winemaker from Fable Mountain Vineyard and Blacksmith Wines has gone into partnership with one of South Africa’s most renowned viticulturists Jaco Engelbrecht. Their focus in the vineyard is sustainability. especially with regards to efficient water utilisation and working with suitable dryland varieties in the face of climate change.
