Stanford Hills Wines

MADE WITH LOVE

Our Wines

Stanford is a relatively new wine production area which is showing tremendous potential. The proximity of Stanford Hills Estate to the coast ensures cool sea breezes during the hotter months, allowing the grapes to gently ripen at optimal speed. Winemaker Peter Kastner believes that great wine is produced in the vineyard, and credits the wonderful soil and climate of the region for the quality of the Estate wines. All grapes used are produced on the farm itself and picked by hand to ensure only the best quality grapes are used for annual wine production.

The farm also makes a Méthode Cap Classique is now available

Wine tastings are offered at The Wine Shop daily.

The somewhat basic cellar is located in one half of an airplane hangar on the farm. Peter believes in minimal interference during the winemaking process to allow the grapes to express their individual identity.

Jacksons
Pinotage 2016

Our Jacksons Pinotage is a prime example of cool climate Pinotage. After three years in bottle, this wine is still showing lively fruit flavours of red cherries, tomato leaf and fresh plums followed by subtle tertiary characters of tobacco and dried fruit.

Stanford Hills
Shiraz 
2016

This is a beautiful example of cool climate Shiraz. The tannins are silky and rounded with great spice and character on the palate. The nose is rich and full of flavour with hints of tobacco and white pepper that accentuate dark red fruit of blackberries, plum and dark cherries.

Stanford Hills
Rosé  2021

Pale and fresh, our 2021 Rosé is best enjoyed chilled in both temperature and temperament. Deep red fruit flavours of dark red cherries and currants are prominent with great acidity to back it up.
