White peach, green pineapple and bloedlemoen on the nose. The palate is rich and more-ish, gentle oaking provides the stage for an intense citrus finish with a refreshing acidity. Perfect for aging or drinking now.

 

This tiny parcel is situated high on the cool slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in Stellenbosch. Originally planted as a rootstock trial in 1980, it contains no less than 32 rootstocks. This oddity produces a multi-layered wine with notable tension and minerality.

 

Thistle and Weed is a collaboration between the Terblanche and Wiid families established in 2015, led by Etienne Terblanche (Viticulturist) and Stephanie Wiid (Winemaker).

 

Inspired by the encroaching weeds found amongst the vines grown in the Cape, Etienne and Steph draw parallels between thistles and weeds and the uncompromising tenacity and survival skills of grapevines.

 

Together, they set out to discover the best of the Cape’s hidden gems, intent on crafting honest wines that are made with a deep connection to nature and offer the most simple expression of the terroir from which they come.
