The Backsberg Family Reserve Red is something very special, because this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%), Merlot (33%) and Malbec (17%) is only produced in a limited edition if a vintage is exceptionally good. Rarely more than 20 barrels are produced. Now this great red wine is also available in a gift wrapping. A symphony of dark fruits, spices and vanilla makes this blend an intense taste experience. Thanks to the 18 months of maturation in French oak, the Backsberg Family Reserve Red impresses with its complexity and is a beautiful companion to dishes with dark meat or you can enjoy it pure at a special moment.

Backsberg – a family-run Success Story

Backsberg is a family-run business. Right from the beginning, the name Backsberg had always been closely related with the family Back that has succeeded in creating fantastic wines over several generations. The special knowledge of the region and its features and capacities is not only passed on, but continuously improved and refined. Even though every generation wants to bring the vineyard Backsberg forward, owner, winemaker and the rest of the team agree that the taste of the wine lovers is the most important aspect at the end of the day.

Backsberg follows ‘down-to-earth’ Mentality

As only a few other wineries, Backsberg knows how to combine excellent premium wines with an easy accessibility. The wines of the estate are rightly renowned amongst critics due to their high quality; at the same time, they are considered as wines just wonderful to drink amongst wine lovers and connoisseurs. In fact, for almost every occasion. This is perfectly mirrored in the lived ‘down-to-earth’ mentality of Backsberg. Structure and finesse of the individual wines go hand in hand with a high level of so-called ‘drinkability’. Particularly the wide array of wines defines the winery. Especially the Bordeaux Blend Klein Babylonstoren is considered to be a typical Backsberg wine. It fulfils the high demand in taste and finesse for the wine critic, but also aims at the wine lover with its full bouquet and the fruity taste.

Backsberg with sustainable Cultivation

As one of the first wineries in South Africa, Backsberg focuses on a sustainable relationship with nature. The wines are created CO2-neutral which is unique in South Africa’s wine world. There are only three estates worldwide that can claim this. Additionally, the family Back is involved in holistic environmental protection. With programs for forestry and planting of native trees and plants, the yard significantly contributes to the preservation of the unique variety of the South African landscape. Backsberg is a wonderful example for the pioneering role that South African wine holds in many aspects.
