The Unwooded Chardonnay invites you with its light shade and subtle aromatic palate offering citrus and apple characteristics throughout. This lightly-styled Chardonnay is generously refreshing and has a lively finish. It can be enjoyed with creamy Chicken dishes or a crisp tuna salad.

 

This elegant Sauvignon Blanc shows fresh and ripe fruits on the palate. Hints of tropical fruits are in perfect harmony to finish with a crisp and elegant taste. The Sauvignon Blanc pair well with white meats including Chicken and Pork

 

The Rosé is made of 100% Merlot. It provides aromas of candy floss and bursts with red fruit flavours.

 

This Cabernet Sauvignon is medium-deep ruby in color. Enticing aromas of blackberries contributes to its remarkably complex taste which is combined with hints of cinnamon and other spices. Ample structure on the palate provides a mellow mouth-feel of delightfully ripe fruits which leads to a lengthy and soft finish. This Cabernet Sauvignon is delicious with a peppery lamb stew or a grilled steak.

 

This medium-deep Merlot is delightfully fruity. With its ruby red color, it generously invites you in with its chocolate and ripe plum flavors which follows through onto the palate offering a concentrated smooth finish. This subtle wine pairs well with most light meats and grilled beef dishes.

 

These Shiraz vines are situated in sandy soil that contributes to the unique style of this wine. On the palate, rewarding violet and plum aromas are combined with hints of spice supporting it’s smokey palate.  This full bodied Shiraz is dark red in colour and provides aromas of black fruits. This wine pairs excellent with game, spicy pate’s, guinea fowl or roasted beef.

“ Eikehof has always been part of my roots. As a young boy I grew up amongst these oak trees and astonishing views of the vineyards and mountains. My love for wine making goes far beyond a career, but a passion for working amongst nature’s beauty. Our farm is based on a simplistic lifestyle and our wines are produced to deliver the finest quality. We love to share our passion with our guests and the team at Eikehof invites you to come and enjoy the relaxed and intimate atmosphere over a glass of our distinctive wines.
