The great diversity of terroir of the Robertson Valley is a major contributing factor to the quality and character of the wines made here, from the rich soils near the river, to the shale and sandstone on the lower slopes of the Langeberg Mountains to the gravelly soils higher up. The Robertson Valley is around 100 miles from Cape Town, between these foothills to the lower reaches of the Breede River. The area is perfect for grape growing with unlimited sunshine and cooling sea breezes. Forty-three growers, many of them fourth generation, supply the modern winery with grapes from a mighty total of 2000 hectares. This has the tell-tale mouthfeel and viscous texture of Viognier, with honeyed apricot flavours and limes on the palate.
