Kraal Bay

Kraalbaai is a beautiful spot on the coast, about 100 miles due north of Cape Town. This wine is a blend from further afield in the Swartland - the (once forgotten, now very trendy) area just inland from this windy coast. A plethora of old bush vines has produced a new generation of intense, savoury reds (and also some powerful Chenins) that have gained an international reputation for the region.



Swartland, a large wine-producing area, is located 65 kilometers north of Cape Town in the Western Cape of South Africa. The climate is warm and dry, the terroirs are diverse (it has among the oldest viticultural soils in the world), and the landscape is breathtaking. 

The area is home to some of the best wines in the country as well as some of the most progressive producers.Typical wines produced here specialise in making rich, fruit-driven wines from the Shiraz, Chenin Blanc and Pinotage grape varieties. 

Swartland, meaning 'Black Land’ is anything but dark, with golden wheatfields, mountains and a diverse landscape. The name comes from the now endangered indigenous renosterbos living in Swartland. At the foot of these Paardeberg mountains, you’ll find an unpretentious wine community. 

The region is home to the most outstanding South African producers, including Mullineux.
