Reservoir Road Pinot Noir is part of our Terroir Specific wines. Our exploration takes us on a discovery of unique vineyard parcels, producing wines that are terroir expressive. The wines show a true sense of place, reflecting their growing condition perfectly.
The Reservoir Road vineyard has a road winding past, this road leads to a reservoir, which is a beacon for this site. It is a low yielding bush vine vineyard, planted on a windswept hillside of weathered granite and ’coffee stone’ soils.
Identifying the ideal sites, cool area and marginal soils, is very important for the perfect terroir expression
a Stellenbosch based wine-making enterprise, which was founded by cousins Gavin Bruwer and Bruwer Raats.
The cousins have an innovative approach, while keeping things simple, nurturing the grapes from vine to bottle and allowing the wines to express their sense of place.
“We celebrate our heritage in the Cape of Good Hope, crafting wines from historic Cape varieties.”
“Our exploration of unique vineyard parcels and vision for the future, takes us on a further discovery, to produce terroir specific wines.”
All the vineyards are distinct, in high-lying areas, close to the ocean and planted on weathered soils.
“Heritage helps us to better understand where we have come from, to now make the decisions and follow a path, that leads to a future of hope.”
