Kloovenburg Wines

The Kloovenburg wine farm is situated in the Swartland wine region and has a unique soil composition for the area it is situated in. The wine maker takes a more traditional boutique style approach to making the wine. All the grapes are skillfully grown and harvested by hand at the Kloovenburg estate. The wines are produced in the most natural way possible, which gives the estate wines a unique flavour profile.  Where applicable, wines are aged in French oak barrels.
