Cape Naturaliste Vineyard:
To the south of Cape Naturaliste, in a picturesque valley behind Smith's Beach, nestles Cape Naturaliste Vineyard. The valley's rich variety of soil types are ideal for the growing of premium wine grapes. Our maritime location, with grapes cooled on the vines by clean air from the Roaring 40's, gives our wine character and depth. Cape Naturaliste Vineyard was planted in 1997 by the owner, Craig...

To the south of Cape Naturaliste, in a picturesque valley behind Smith's Beach, nestles Cape Naturaliste Vineyard. The valley's rich variety of soil types are ideal for the growing of premium wine grapes. Our maritime location, with grapes cooled on the vines by clean air from the Roaring 40's, gives our wine character and depth. Cape Naturaliste Vineyard was planted in 1997 by the owner, Craig Brent-White, who pur- chased the land from a mineral sands company in 1980. Rain water quality from a natural spring fed soak, helps ease the thirst in the early part of the season and post harvest. Although some of our paddocks are dry grown due to the presence of under ground springs, the intensity of flavours is further enhanced by fruit exposure, bunches per vine, shoot thinning and discarding any bunches that don’t complete verasion. Vines are a natural choice for this area, preserving the beauty of our valley with a bio-dynamic philosophy towards farming techniques and restoring native plant varieties along watercourses. Our reserve 2003 & 2004 wines are barrel aged in French and American oak for 14 months. The 2005 sees the first vintage barrel aged for 24 months. The object is to offer wines that are 3 to 4 years old upon release. To achieve this we have to hold back a vintage post bottling and store for at least 12 months. We currently have two ranges of wine available: Cape Naturaliste Sauvignon Blanc , Cape Naturaliste Semillon Sauvignon Blanc , Monty's Fine Old Muscat, Cape Naturaliste Botrytis Semillon , Torpedo Rocks Reserve Semillon, Torpedo Rocks Cabernet Merlot , Torpedo Rocks Shiraz, Torpedo Rocks Merlot, House Block Cabernet Sauvignon , Torpedo Rocks Cabernet Shiraz.
