Fodor's The Complete Guide to African Safaris
This estate may date back to 1682, but it's been brought thoroughly up-to-date with a state-of-the art winery and underground vaulted maturation rooms. The estate is known for red wine, particularly its 100% cabernet Peter Barlow (named after the present owner's father), which is made from grapes from one lovely, well-tended vineyard. The Five Soldiers Chardonnay is delicious and also made from a single vineyard, which gives it its unique character. It's named for the five tall pine trees that stand guard on top of the hill above the chardonnay grapes. The farm's second label, Brampton, also makes excellent wines. The 2004 and 2006 cabernet sauvignon have won awards, but both are sold out, so scoop up some of the 2007 while it's still available and put it down for a couple of years. The 2007 Shiraz is also wonderful. The farm uses screw caps for quality and environmental reasons.
