  • HERBARIUM

    The heritage building inside which Maanschijn crafts its wines has lived many lives. Previously a stable, it was also later inhabited by a Walker Bay local, Oom Sampie, who, within its walls, used to dry an assortment of indigenous flowers for sale at the local market.

  • COMPOSITION

    Four varieties make up this Cape Red blend: Pinotage, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Cabernet franc. The vineyards, all located in the southern, cooler Walker Bay wine district, are surrounded by the rich expanse of the Cape’s fynbos kingdom.

  • WINEMAKING

    The fruit was fermented spontaneously, partially in whole bunches, for thirty-three days before being pressed to aged French oak. Maturation lasted ten months in aged Burgundy casks. The wine was then blended and bottled, sans fining.
