  • A rich and creamy Sauvignon Blanc is beautifully balanced by fresh minerality and lively notes of passion fruit, lemon zest and grapefruit. Distinguished by complexity, the subtle aromas of fern and hay are layered with passion fruit, lemon zest and grapefruit, and earthy minerality. The rich and creamy palate is beautifully balanced by fresh minerality through to a charming, classy finish
  • Awards 93 pts, Tim Atkin, 2021


Elgin Valley is surrounded by mountains, which creates a cool microclimate, resulting in temperatures 3°C degrees lower on average than surrounding areas. The valley funnels cooling sea breezes from the Atlantic, just seven miles away. The vineyard is between 250 to 300 metres above sea level and has a south-east to easterly aspect to optimise sun exposure. The soils are clay mixed with iron-rich ferricreet cobbles and shale. The clay soils retain exactly the amount of water needed, while the steep slopes and rocky top soils guarantee sufficient drainage. Combined with a dry farming policy, these nutrient-poor soils impart intensity and character to the wine and produce a full-bodied style of Sauvignon Blanc. The Lyre-trained vines have an average age of 11 years and are planted at a high density on R 110-14 rootstocks. Hand harvesting takes place in small, 18-kilogram crates.

Koen Roose became the founder, owner, winemaker and viticulturist when he purchased Spioenkop in 2000. A former engineering student, he instead followed his passion for wine and became a qualified sommelier. Having worked vintages in Burgundy and South Africa, he nurtured his dream of creating a vineyard in the cool climate region of Elgin. Planted in 2007, the dream became a reality, with Koen following a philosophy of dry farming, with low intervention and free from artificial fertilisers, pesticides and herbicides. The farm is named after the Battle of Spioenkop in 1900, during the Anglo-Boer War. As a history enthusiast, Roose kept the name, and fittingly, Spioenkop is now creating its history by producing award-winning wines. It has been awarded First Growth status by Tim Atkin MW in 2020 and 2021.
