Enticing aromas of black forest cake, ripe plum, cherry and vanilla beckon on the nose. On the palate subtle hints of roasted coffee bean combine with oak spice while delightful dried fruit flavors linger on the aftertaste.

All wine grapes produced on the estate are organically farmed and the final bottled product is certified by Control
Union, an international organic certification body. Org de Rac aims for complex, fruit-driven organic wines that reflect the unique terroir. The unique group of elements in the soil is sustainably managed with different cover crops, vetches and organic mulching to stimulate healthy soil microbial activity. Irrigation is monitored with probe management and our weather station to curb water wastage. The south-facing vineyards are planted in east to west vine row directions and the prevailing cool westerly breezes off the Atlantic Ocean clear the vines of any potential diseases and have an amazing cooling effect. This creates a day/night temperature differential which stimulates better colour and in general creates optimal plant conditioning and slower ripening, resulting in better fruit retention and more complex, fruit driven wines. Fermented to dryness on the skins after extended maceration on the
skins followed for another 14 days.
