Benguela Cove Vineyards

Benguela Cove boasts South Africa's longest stretch of ocean facing vineyards (2.6km), grown at the lowest altitude - 2.7m above sea level. Located where Walker Bay meets Bot River, Benguela Cove's vineyards are unique. The special climatic conditions create a sublime setting for visitors and a special terroir to produce wines of distinction. The south-easterly sea breeze is chilled by the Benguela Current flowing up from Antarctica, to cool the grapes at night after warm summer days, irrigated by above average rainfall, for slow ripening and perfect viniculture.

The Story | Signature Estate Wines

Dedicated to the craft of allowing each wine to tell its own story, only estate-grown grapes are used to encapsulate this quintessential cool climate. This range bears consistent quality that echoes the diversity of styles produced from a single estate, be it red or white wine.The vineyards are brought to life on the shores of the Bot River lagoon where this special Walker Bay terroir holds the key to creating wines layered with fruit and poised on natural and bright acidities. Our vines are adjusted to the marginal conditions close to the sea, anchored in diverse soil types and on different aspects that in turn create various microclimates to harbour different varieties.

The Story | Estate Méthod Cap Classique

The Cuvée58 Méthod Cap Classique allures with vivid aromas of candied apple, pear and sweet grass. The bright acidity is balanced with a tangy finish, concluded with a fresh floral note. With a name that celebrates the facets of a diamond, sauvignon blanc was a clear-cut choice to lead this refreshing MCC. Reflecting the precision that both the diamond cutter and the winemaker apply to their craft; this wine is light yet luminous with enough gravitas to pour at any celebratory occasion.
