DU TOITSKLOOF ESTATE
The picturesque Du Toitskloof Estate is situated in a tucked away corner of the great Breede River valley, we create our wines in the clear mountain air from healthy, slow-ripening grapes. Du Toitskloof Wines sources the majority of their grapes for their ranges from the Breedekloof valley, all within a 10km radius of the cellar. This sees to it that all the grapes share similar soil types and micro-climates. With a large array of different terroirs, the cellar makes wine with grapes that have grown along cool mountain slopes, in alluvial soils with high water-retention capabilities as well as sandy and rocky soils. In hot summers the vineyards are shaded from early on by the high peaks of the Du Toitskloof Mountains, leading to slow ripening and intensity of flavours. White wines produce tropical aromas of guava, gooseberry, pineapple and lichi, while the reds produce fruity dark berries, cherries, blackcurrant and fynbos nuances.
