Based at the south end of Stellenbosch, with views of False Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, the 40 hectare red wine property is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Proximity to the sea provides a specific microclimate that, together with the old ferricrete soils, are perfect for producing rich and focused wines. Under the guidance of internationally well-known Bordeaux wine personalities Hubert de Boü ard (co-owner of Château Angélus in Saint-Emilion) and Bruno Prats (former owner of Château Cos d’Estournel in Saint-Estephe), Anwilka has established a worldwide reputation for this red blend which has been described by Robert Parker as “the best red wine I have ever had from South Africa”


Notes and Reviews

Château Tasting

James Suckling: This is really a phenomenal South African wine for the money showing such delicacy yet also power. The nose boasts plenty of iodine, crushed stones, balsam, violets and hints of sweet herbs. The palate's full and exuberant with mouth-coating tannins and a long finish. Best in 2020.
