Your same favourite wine with a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.
Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. White blossom, elderflower, fresh asparagus and cape gooseberry marry on both the nose and palate. Acidity and spice form the backbone, dominating on the palate, while a creamy texture rounds out the overall mouthfeel. The palate shows capsicum, nasturtium and lime. A lingering mineral finish completes the experience.
This wine will be enhanced by a food pairing such as shellfish, a Thai curry accented by ginger and lemongrass, a savoury tart tatin or grilled calamari.
Although beautifully balanced from date of release, this wine is still developing. Drink now, but wait five to seven years for a truly evolved experience.

Your same favourite wine with a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Chardonnay (previously Steenberg Sphynx Chardonnay) featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.
Our 2021 Chardonnay shows upfront and intense aromas of citrus marmalade, fresh Golden Delicious apple, butterscotch and shortbread on the nose. Subtle vanilla oak spice is carried through from the nose to the palate where it meets flavours of quince and candied apple. It is complemented by a bright, clean structure and long finish, which in turn is tempered by a lifting acidity and chalky minerality.
The wine is ready to enjoy now but will reward patience and age gracefully for the next 2- 5 years.

Your same favourite wine with a fresh new look! We have released the new packaging of Steenberg Syrah featuring an elegant, contemporary aesthetic.
Our gracious Steenberg Syrah’s full red colour is a sign of the flavours and aromas that await you in the glass. Dried prune, cloves, plums, and cherry sherbet on the nose transform into a medium-bodied, delicate black fruit and spice driven wine with soft, fine tannins, integrated acidity and a silky texture. The ideal partner to fillet au poivre – in fact all red meats grilled over open flames.

The Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc 2020 is a pure expression of the Steenberg terroir and shows notes of nettle, gunflint, elderflower and fynbos on the nose, while the palate supports the aromas with fresh lemon zest and subtle hints of stone fruit and asparagus. A mouth-watering acidity accompanies a full and long finish achieved with extended lees contact in tank. This is a wonderful food wine and will reward cellaring of between 10 – 20 years.

The 2018 Catharina is bold yet suave, forthright yet subtle, assured and alluring. It displays volumes of basil and cedar, cassis and lavender blossom, cinnamon stick and dark chocolate. Layers of concentrated red and black fruit (raspberry, blackcurrant and black cherry) show on both the nose and the palate, accented with a full, smooth texture from the Cabernet Sauvignon component. Light herbal notes from the Merlot lend a refreshing finish, while the Malbec and Petit Verdot round out the blend, adding structure and depth. Dark fruit and spice, lifting acidity and an encompassing tannic finish create the optimal pairing for most red meat (particularly a garlic and rosemary stuffed roast lamb shoulder) or rich saucy dishes. Will bottle age well for 7 to 10 years after bottling.

Returning to this wine years after bottling has proven what a great vintage 2017 was for reds in Constantia. On appearance, this wine is ruby red with a typically clear yet bright hue. The bouquet displays primary notes of fresh strawberry coulis, dried cranberry along with some truffle, leather and red cherry. The wine displays the natural tart acidity and grippy tannins of Nebbiolo on the palate, although with a well-rounded and fuller mouth-feel than can sometimes be the case with this varietal. Flavours of sour cherry, raspberry and tobacco leaf linger to give the wine brilliant length and persistence.
The wine shows beautiful fruit and floral characters in youth, but will develop well over the next 7 to 10 years and will greatly reward those who resist it’s youthful charm.

Our 2020 Semillon is a beautiful pale gold colour. Aromas of apricot, cardamom and orange blossom greet you upon first inspection. Quince, hay bale and roasted almond complete the sensation on the palate. Poised, weighted fruit concentrates the mid-palate, after which the wine broadens out with a rich, almost waxy texture and bright acidity. A citrus and floral spice lingers on the palate long after the last drop. This Semillon will continue to evolve in complexity and richness with age.
