|The grapes were sourced from trellised (90%) and bush vines (10%) in the Stellenbosch, Darling and Malmesbury areas situated at an altitude of 100 to 500m above sea level. These vines grow mainly in deep red soils with some sandy loam on mainly south-facing vineyard slopes.
Since the early 18th century, Zonnebloem has been a leader in the timehonoured craft of winemaking. Today this tradition lives on from the vineyards, tended by the same families for over three generations, to the meticulous craftsmanship in the cellar. This care and attention have resulted in range of great wines nurtured, handcrafted and slowly coaxed to perfection, until they are released at optimum quality. These full-bodied wines are well-structured to show varietal character with rich, robust flavours, yet remain accessible and easy to drink with a soft palate, and in the case of the reds, to last for 5 to 10 years.
