CAPE VINTAGE ROOBERNET PORT
A true South African Cultivar.
Our Wines and Port
It has always been Jacques' passion to experience the end
result and effects of various clones of grape varieties, as reflected in
Wines are made in open cement fermentation tanks and the skins are pushed through by hand. No finings are added, sulphur levels are kept as low as possible and all wines are unfiltered. Small oak barrels are used for storage.
As Welvanpas, the cultivar range of grapes comprises of Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chenin Blanc, Cape Riesling and the relatively newcomer, Roobernet. Here they decided not to fight nature and tend to let things go according to the climate, which makes Wellington so well suited for viticulture nursery production. The Welvanpas grapes mature at relatively high sugar contents, thus higher alcohol levels, but with the complexity, flavour and inherent "richness", which is characteristic of Wellington wines.
It has been said that Wellington is one of the best kept secrets in South African wine circles.
Jacques claims an all time first in making Port from Roobernet
and he plans to have another surprise up his sleeve shortly.
His red blend, namely Cabernet Sauvignon/ Shiraz, is aptly called “Vine Valley” after the vine nursery industry in Wellington. It his motto not to add a wine description to his wine labels. Jacques believes that wine lovers should have the pleasure of discovering for themselves what nature has put into their glass.
Welvanpas and the Smit family support the entire life cycle of wine with dedication-and they invite you to enjoy and share their passion for these unique wines.
