The Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2017 unites the tropical and green notes of the grape variety and with its fresh character, it is the ideal wine for summer: Nuances of fig leaves and nettles, paired with lime blossoms and white grapefruit make for a complex interplay of aromas which is skilfully rounded off by a vivid acidity. The noticeable minerality mirrors the Steenberg terroir and gives the white wine that is an excellent meal companion to light dishes with fish, sea food or salad, the finishing touch. Even the critics were convinced and awarded the Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2017 with 91 Tim Atkin Points, Veritas Silver and Old Mutual Trophy Bronze. Discover this fresh white wine and take advantage of our special offer in July. When buying five bottles of Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc 2017, you get one more bottle for free. The offer is limited until 31.07.2018 and is valid, as always, only while stocks last.

Steenberg in Constantia with True Luxury Atmosphere

Steenberg is one of the oldest properties in the Constantia region. Its former origin dates back to the year 1682 – back then, it was called ‘Swaaneweide’. Catharina Ras, a woman with a strong mind, founded the estate and was one of the very first South African women who owned land. Later on, Peter van der Stel decided to build his manor house there. Since 1969, it is registered as a national monument.

But it was only with the end of the Apartheid that the estate reached its current glory. In 1990, not only the vineyards but also the awe-inspiring manor house including housing complex were restored as part of an extensive and elaborate renovation. In order to be able to offer its visitors more and to make the stay truly unforgettable, Steenberg opened a luxury hotel in 1997 with a divine golf course and the numerously awarded star restaurant Catharina’s. Since 2007, Graham Beck is the proud owner of the wine farm Steenberg.

Excellent Location and Detailed Wine Cultivation

Steenberg is located less than 20 minutes away from Cape Town. The farm covers a total area of 203 hectares from which 60 hectares are completely planted with vines that grow at an altitude of 60 up to 160 metres above sea level. The vines are oriented towards the north-west to ensure sunlight reaches the vines as good as possible. Due to the mild, cool sea breezes, the temperatures are surprisingly cool and constant rain provides sufficient nutrients in the growth period. At the winery, the winemakers cultivate 60% white vines – dominantly Sauvignon Blanc, followed by Chardonnay and Sémillon. 40% are left to the red grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Shiraz. Steenberg is also one of the few wine farms that cultivate the Italian vine Nebbiolo. Those wines are often ideal meal companions with a well-defined acid content and fruity expression. Besides the Steenberg Sauvignon Blanc, the Merlot and Sémillon can also highly be recommended.

Catharina‘s and Bistro Sixteen 82

The through and through noble restaurant Catharina’s honours the founder of the Estate who, despite the unfavourable circumstances (after all, she survived four husbands and married a fifth), has always believed in the possibilities of Steenberg. Here, the kitchen serves modern variations for the sophisticated palate.

In the year 2009, Graham Beck decided to build the highly modern and exclusive bistro Sixteen 82 which hints at the founding year of Steenberg. Sitting on the sheltered terrace, gourmets enjoy the beautiful view of the impressive mountains that surround the vineyards. Head chef Kerry Kiplin dedicates his culinary art completely to the Asian cuisine, inspired by his frequent visits to Thailand.
