Whole Lotta Love


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.

Layered with complex aromas of berry fruit and oak spice both on the nose and through to the palate. The rich mineral characteristic of the terroir gives this blend rich and intense but soft textured velvety tannins. A true Cape blend with great potential to develop for many years to come.

Tasting Notes

A rich, powerful blend of 59% pinotage, 21% petit verdot and 20% syrah with lots of body and round, creamy tannins. Shows blackberry and cherry character. Long and flavorful. Drinkable now, but better after a couple of years.

– James Suckling // 93 Points // 2015

A very rich and concentrated wine from Pinotage, Petit Verdot and Shiraz. Dark purple colour with violet hue and black core. Intense aroma, violet and d liquorice, black cherries, blackcurrants, mild hints of vanilla, gingerbread, ripe fruit, liquorice and violets. On the palate well balance with opulent character, fine acidity, good balance, excellent length and depths.

Trophy for Best Red blend – 2018 Novare Terroir Wine Awards // 2015


A little less opulent than the 2015 rendition of this wine, yet it’s intense and focused with very pretty aromas and flavors of ripe berries and chocolate that come through nicely. Medium to full body, creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. A blend of 55% pinotage, 23% petit verdot and 22% shiraz. Drink or hold.
