Child in Time


Springfontein’s soil is full of limestone rocks, and the roots of our vines thrust deep into the earth to suck in the water and minerals captured there. Like the vintage songs of rock and roll legends, limestone has been the baseline for a myriad of iconic wines.

Blackberry aromas with violets and caramel notes on the nose. Well textured and structured with tannins. On the palate the wine shows characteristic fruit and earthy aromas with undertones of oak spice. This wine will continue to develop further with time.
