“The cool maritime climate of the tip of Africa tempers the vineyards to produce delicious wines that reflect the uniqueness of the region.”
Sourcing grapes from the most southerly vineyards in Africa, Du Toitskloof produces this South Coast series as one of its premium ranges. The long day length and moderate temperatures during ripening results in unique varietal expressions, low yields and the achievement of true physiological ripeness at moderate alcohol levels with high natural acid levels that makes Land’s End a pleasurable drinking experience and adds to the aging potential of our wines.
Land’s End is an authentic Cape South Coast wine, owning and leading regional Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz in the world.
Sauvignon blanc vineyards are specifically selected and managed to enhance a combination of tropical flavours such as passion fruit, litchi, winter melon and ripe fig and herbaceous flavours such as green fig, green beans and asparagus. High natural acid levels results in the limited use of added acid. This ensures a truly natural expression of fruit with a soft natural- and crisp acid as background. The combination of low yielding vineyards, high natural acids and moderate temperatures during the ripening period also adds to the aging potential of the Sauvignon blanc.
Shiraz vineyards are specifically selected and managed to produce wines with spicy, peppery and black fruit characters supported by a fleshy and complex mid pallet. The delicate use of small oak barrels enhances the Shiraz fruit characters and ensures a long and lingering aftertaste. This Shiraz is not only an accessible wine from release but will also improve with bottle aging.
