Dark Side of the Moon


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.

A white Cape blend made with grapes grown on limestone. This blend is unique and true to its terroir with layers of aromas ranging from tropical, peach, citrus, floral, and spicy notes. On the palate the wine has a fine minerally texture with a refreshing long finish.

A blend of Chenin Blanc, Pinotage and Chardonnay with a deep golden colour. Very rich nose with intense aroma reminiscent of quinces jelly, baked apple, hints of vanilla, candied melon. On the palate rich and well structured with freshness, depth and length, fine candied fruit, mild spices, gingerbread spices and elegant toasting aroma.
