Description

Gedeelte Wines is a unique wine farm situated in the St Helena Bay region on South Africa's West Coast. The vineyards are planted in the flattened sea sands filled with limestone, close to the cold Atlantic. The farm Brakkuil was established in the early 1800's whilst the first grapes (Barbarossa and Palomino) were planted here in 1978. 

In 2002, farm owner Wimpie Bouwer (father to now winemaker John Bouwer) planted 6ha of the first Sauvignon Blanc vines which today is used to produce a unique Sauvignon Blanc matured under veil. 

This Palomino is produced using the grapes from a traditional Spanish varietal. The vineyard at the foot of “Klein Tafelberg” (small Table Mountain) is comprised of limestone rich coastal soil – adding hugely to the Palomino’s subtle notes of natural sea salt minerality. During harvesting, the grapes are pressed and their juices inserted into tanks until primary fermentation has been successfully executed. The young wine moves over into French Oak barrels where the wine will be racked and left to mature under its own natural veil – a truly unique South African take on this classic Sherry grape.
