Why We Love This Wine

The Swartland Wine Cooperative was established in 1948 so that the different independent grape growers in the area could deliver & press their own grapes. The 1st Chairman of the newly formed cooperative donated 4 hectares of his own Doornkuil farm to be utilized for the developing winery. The Swartland Winery, which has evolved through the years from a Cooperative Cellar to a privately owned wine company, is situated roughly 70 kilometers north of Cape Town and 3 kilometers outside of the town of Malmesbury, where wine farms are spread out on the hills surrounding it, on the way to Paarl. The vineyards here benefit from the the constant cool breezes originating from the Atlantic Ocean effectively sustaining the microclimates further bolstered by the wine farms' proximity to mountain ranges that add character to the grape berries grown here. Today, Swartland produces approximately 2 million bottles of wine a year ranging from their entry level Serengeti line to their higher end Bushvine range from grapes supplied by producers across an area of 3,600 hectares. This is a rich garnet colored wine with lots of ripe plum fruit & chocolate flavors complemented by a nose dominated by dark fruit notes. This is a fruity & balanced wine with a firm tannic structure. Ebjoy this witrh Grilled Lambchops, Braised Beef Shortribs, Venison Stew, & Chinese Style Roast Duck with Plum Sauce.

Winemaker / Tasting Notes

The Serengeti Cabernet Sauvignon reveals simple & straightforward dark fruit & black currant aromas & flavors. On the palate, it has a firm structure & fairly integrated tannins that culminate in an elegant dark chocolate laced finish.
