WALKER BAY BIRKENHEAD

Vines were first planted on the Birkenhead Estate in 2003 with a vision to complement the well established micro brewery on the property. Birkenhead Estate has become a great destination for young and old with a delightful pub, a restaurant, amphitheatre and vast lawns suited to a variety of occasions and events or a simple rendezvous with friends. The range of wines is designed to maximize the growing conditions of the Stanford area and are an interesting expression of the local terroir.

The first grapes were harvested in 2007 when Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay wines were bottled. In 2008 these cultivars were joined by a red blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot with the evocative name of Amesteca , a Romanian word meaning to amalgamate . This ties in with the shareholders gold mining interests in Romania and is an unusual name for a blend. There are 11 ha currently under vine, with 3 ha of this coming on stream in 2010. Another 10 ha will be planted over the next two years.

THE WINES:

Walker Bay Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Rose, Amesteca (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot blend).
