Already with its dark red colour and bouquet, the Blaauwklippen De Blaauwe Klip delights the connoisseur. The complex play of aromas, notes of blackcurrants and plums are combined with chocolate and smoky tones. Sumptuous tannins caress the palate and ensure that the full-bodied blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (38%), Merlot (24%), Cabernet Franc (14.5%), Malbec (14.5%) and Petit Verdot (9%) will be remembered for a long time to come, before it fades away with a mineral finish. The red wine matured for 16 months in French oak and is an excellent accompaniment to dishes with dark meat. The name De Blaauwe Klip recalls the blue granite soil in the Dwarsriver and was the earliest known name for Blaauwklippen.

Blaauwklippen – Home of the Zinfandel

The estate Blaauwklippen has gained international fame especially with its successful variations of the grape variety Zinfandel. Wine lovers can find a whole array of different premium wines from this grape variety - from strong red up to sweet dessert wines up to the first ‘white’ Zinfandel from South Africa altogether. They are all of an exceptionally high quality and were able to win international awards several times. Blaauwklippen pursues a simple but successful strategy in wine production. The flavour of the product is primarily decided on the wine slope itself. Only rarely the winemaker Rolf Zeitvogeland his team intervene with cellar techniques to change aromas and flavours. The team regards itself as pure catalyst that allows the natural taste of each grape variety to be expressed.

Rolf Zeitvogel – the German in South Africa

Rolf Zeitvogel works as a Cellar Master and managing director at Blaauwklippen. The passionate amateur chef did not just find a job in wine production, but his true calling. After his studies, he gained experience at such renowned South African estates such as Bergelder, the KWV and Buitenverwachting. After a quick return to his home country, he was drawn back to South Africa again where he and the team as passionate as himself stand for the continuous success of Blaauwklippen.

Glorious History with Passion and Dedication

Blaauwklippen is one of the oldest wineries of the country. For more than three hundred years, winemakers have been producing South African wines on the highest level here. The estate is also one of the founding members of the Stellenbosch Wine Route which is an integral part for every enthusiastic wine tourist in South Africa. The customer has always been the main focus of Blaauwklippen. For example, the Blaauwklippen Blending Competition was the first and still is the only competition in South Africa that is not aimed at producers but directly at the gourmet.
