This pale, coral pink dry rosé delivers subtle fragrances of strawberry sherbet, blueberry coulis, rose petal, watermelon and fresh garden herbs on the nose.

The wine shows off a fresh palate with notes of juicy summer melon, berries and spiced peaches. This wine is clean and bright yet shows great depth and lingers considerably on the palate.

In The Cellar

Our Steenberg Ruby Rosé is made from Syrah. The Syrah grapes hail from multiple blocks from our farm in Constantia. The grapes were hand-picked at an average of 22 degrees balling in the early morning in mid-February. They were whole-bunch pressed with a champagne pressing cycle to extract a pale and delicate juice.

The Syrah juices were fermented separately. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and protect the primary characteristics of the varietal. The juices were inoculated with neutral yeast strains and underwent a cool fermentation (13-15°C) for about 21 days.

The wine underwent a light fining and was bottled in mid-May 2023.

    Same taste, now with a showstopper bright pink label. 

    Our pale pink 1682 Pinot Noir Rosé Cap Classique is fresh with fruity aromas of raspberry jelly, wild strawberry sorbet, red apple skin and toasted brioche. The wine has a very fine mousse that lifts the raspberry-like aromas and is balanced well with a creamy texture and bright acidity with a lingering dry finish. Enjoy in its youth or cellar for 3 to 5 years to promote a more savoury flavour development.

    JULY PROMOTION. WAS R185. NOW R148

    Previously known as Rattlesnake Sauvignon Blanc.

    Both terroir and treatment are immediately evident in the glass. A resonance of dill, capers, greengage, and wet granite marry on both the nose and palate. Acidity and spice form the backbone, dominating on the palate, while a pithy yet creamy texture rounds out the overall mouthfeel. The textured, juicy palate shows citrus zest, vanilla and apricot. A lingering herbaceous and mineral finish completes the experience. This wine will be enhanced by a food pairing such as shellfish, or a Thai curry accented by ginger and lemongrass. Drink now, but wait five to seven years for a truly evolved experience.

  • STEENBERG SAUVIGNON BLANC 2023

    Wine Club price R131.75 p/b

    The 2023 Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc, pale-straw in colour with an ever so slight green hue, hypnotises with a seductive bouquet showing fresh cape gooseberry, nettle, lemon zest, granny smith apple pith, and white peach. This cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc has a sumptuous entry tied to an enduring length. The lifting acidity maintains a lively flavour on the palate with citrus blossom and quince while maintaining a distinctive mineral core derived from the Steenberg terroir. All the elements of this wine will enable it to bottle age well over the next 2-5 years.
