Awards, Reviews and other Notes

96 pts Tim Atkin MW 2019
Perched at the top of Jonkershoek Valley at 590 metres Oude Nektar is one of the most spectacular vineyards in Stellenbosch and produces a wine to match. Big, bold and dense, it has a meaty, Saint Estephe quality to it combining fynbos aromas with 70% new wood and layers of dark, plush inky fruit. Stunning. 2022 – 2235.

Winemaker Notes

This is the third vintage of this wine after re-planting. Our idea has always been to make what is basically a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from this unique vineyard. It is not a true single-vineyard in that we have blended in barrel selections of the best of our other vineyards. The Cabernet has a very intense cassis aroma with unique citrus-rind notes. It has a firmer tannin structure than many of our wines, but still with the elegance for which Jonkershoek Valley wines are known.
This wine is based around the highest elevation vineyard on the farm. Originally planted in 2003, it burned down in 2009 and was re-planted. It is an ideal combination of soil and site. It has a very stoney decomposed granite soil with a clay subsoil and it has an almost perfect aspect towards the afternoon sun This aspect and elevation means that the vineyard receives almost 45 minutes more direct sunlight than Stellenbosch average.
