De Waal Signal Rock 2019

This is a dark-coloured wine, with beautiful fresh black fruit and mulberries. It is voluptuous and rich, with a velvety, round finish.

THE SIGNAL ROCK STORY - This story comes a long way and was told by Jan de Waal, the grandfather of the current owner, Pieter de Waal. Jan started farming on the family farm in 1913. During winter days, daily at about 12h00, the sun shines on a specific rock in the Stellenbosch Mountains. This was an indication (the signal) to the workers, who didn’t own wristwatches at the time, that it was time for a lunch break.
This phenomenon can still be seen today from the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vineyards on the farm.
