From dryland bushvine grapes planted in 1960 against the mountains of the Paarl area. The vineyard is approx 2Ha but because of the age and years of neglect while the grapes were being delivered to coops the yields are extremely low. They started nurturing the vineyards in 2016 with Lukas pruning and suckering each vine himself to assess the damage. Fermented and aged in 3rd fill French oak on the lees for about 10 months with no yeast or enzymes added in the winemaking process.
2020 will unfortunately be the final vintage of the Kameraderie as this vineyard is unfortunately at a stage where it’s no longer financially viable farming it – given it’s been producing 1T of grapes for the past three years.
