Additional Information
This wine is part of the popular lifestyle range, the Young Vines range.
De Waal Wines, situated on Uiterwyk Estate in the cool Stellenbosch Kloof Valley, has
been a De Waal family concern since 1864. The experience waiting for the visitor is authentic and understated with personal attention from hands-on management.
Owned by Pieter de Waal, this historic family legacy boasts nine generations of passionate winemakers, entirely focused on delighting their patrons by offering exceptional wines. The wines combine elegant Old World finesse and abundant New World fruit. De Waal's mature vineyards offer grapes that produce deep, rich wines fondly recalled for their consistent quality and enjoyment.
De Waal is renowned for the classic style of its Pinotage wines, the only indigenous South African grape variety. CT de Waal, a member of this family, was the first person to make wine from Pinotage grapes in 1941. Uiterwyk is also the home of Top of the Hill Pinotage, made from the oldest Pinotage vines in the world.
The Premium Range: The Premium range includes the Top of the Hill Pinotage, Signal Rock, Cabernet Sauvignon, and CT de Waal Pinotage, as well as the De Waal Merlot and De Waal Pinotage.
De Waal Young Vines: The Young Vines range is a value for money range aimed at everyday enjoyment without departing from handcrafted quality. The range includes a Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Merlot, and Shiraz.
Roots of the De Waal Family in South Africa
Jan de Waal was granted a property or “erf” by Governor Ryk Tulbagh in 1752. This property was 93 Bree Street in Cape Town, restored and known today as the Jan de Waal House, now a National Monument.
In 1760 Jan de Waal bought the farm Schotcheskloof lying between Dorp and Wale Streets (known today as the Bo-Kaap). He developed the single-story house on the farm into a long, double story house with 14 bedrooms, just perfect to be able to accommodate all of his 17 children! It was here that the De Waal family started making wine, nine generations ago.
