Packwood wines from the beginning…
2009 – Our maiden vintage Sauvignon Blanc a nose of gooseberry and asparagus, a beautiful mouth feel, full bodied and a lasting taste. Jean-Pierre Rossouw (of Rossouw’s Restaurant Guidefame) gives the thumbs up, saying: “A very pure wine, with a lovely bright nose of tropical fruit and some lively grassy notes – classic sauvignon in expression. On the palate it is medium in weight and fresh, with very good fruit expression. All in all a great debut!”
2010 – First pinot noir harvest Blanc de Noir MCC, made in the traditional French way. This bubbly stole the show and was awarded the trophy at the Vitis Vinifera awards.
2011 – Sauvignon Blanc awarded district winner by the Novare Terroir Awards, 4 star rating by the Platter Guide and a bronze at the 2012 Old Mutual Trophy Awards, aromas of freshly mown grass, zesty lemon with a hint of asparagus.

2012 – Pinot Noir and Chardonnay harvested and blended together for an MCC. This delicious
bubbly delivers a very full mouth feel, fruity on the nose with a lasting and off dry finish. It received a silver award from the IWSC London and a double gold fro Vitis Vinifera.

2013 – Our first still Pinot noir, harvested in March 2013, whole bunch pressed and matured in French oak, this burgundy style Pinot delivers a clean bright colour with blackcurrant, cherry and fresh red fruits dancing on the palette, an earthy wine with a kiss of spice. We were awarded a bronze from IWSC in London and a trophy award at Vitis Vinifera.
Sauvignon Blanc 2015 – an exotic tropical nose with flinty minerality, green asparagus and dry peach on the palette, a long and lasting finish. This wine will bottle age very well.

opal gemstone in colour, dry white peach and nutty on the palette, this wine will pair beautifully
with all culinary delights, but in particular with smoked produce.
