The word klippen is a geographical term for an outcrop of rock, whilst kop in Afrikaans translates as either a hillock or a head.

Vineyards

The fruit was sourced from 35 specially selected grape growing families in the Robertson Valley. Vines are grown in deep alluvial soil that is rich in lime and receives an annual rainfall of only 280mm per year. The Chenin Blanc vines are planted on the riverbanks with a row direction from the northwest to southeast to utilize the prevailing sea breeze. The annual average rainfall is supplemented by controlled drip irrigation from the Breede River.

Wine Making

Grapes were harvested between 21-22B from a selection of vineyards. Gentle pressing followed by using a pneumatic bag press to capture the delicate fruit component. The was made reductively to prevent any oxidation and to ensure that natural flavours of the grapes could be retained. Fermentation happened slowly in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 18 days at 13C. 

Tasting Notes

An appealing light straw colour. Full bodied wine with powerful varietal flavours of pineapple, granadilla, melon and green apple. Good structure with lovely balancing acidity.
