Springfield Estate

Set against the backdrop of the mountain-ringed Robertson Valley in the Western Cape of South Africa, Springfield Estate is a family-owned wine farm with a rich history. This wine farm is run by the ninth-generation descendants of French Huguenots who arrived in South Africa in 1688, carrying bundles of vines. The farm has been part of the Bruwer family since 1898, diligently producing wines that are true to their motto: Made on Honour. The Bruwer family combines traditional winemaking methods with modern technology while maintaining a sense of practicality and determination that comes from years of living off the land. Their approach involves a blend of risky winemaking techniques that allow them to produce wines that are unique, characterful, and true to their roots. Springfield Estate's commitment to maintaining the integrity of their wines, along with their rich history and dedication, makes them a standout choice for wine enthusiasts looking for a taste of South Africa's finest.

Springfield Estate, Red Blend, 2016

This red blend from Springfield Estate is a harmonious combination of 41% Cabernet Franc, 37% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 7% Petit Verdot. The meticulous blend of these grapes results in a wine that perfectly encapsulates the distinctive character of the Robertson region of South Africa.

Each grape variety in the blend contributes its unique character to the wine. The Cabernet Franc provides a structured backbone, while the Merlot adds roundness and body. The Cabernet Sauvignon imparts depth and complexity, and the Petit Verdot gives the wine a touch of spice and color.
