NATURE’S GREATEST GIFT TO US IS OUR
FIVE DIFFERENT MICROCLIMATES.
Situated in the fertile Agter-Paarl area, between Malmesbury and Durbanville, Perdeberg is in a fortunate
position to maximise the opportunities to create diverse wines this unique landscape presents.
The majority of our vines are unirrigated dry land vineyards cultivated on various soil types. Given our close mountain proximity, these soils consist mainly of decomposed granite with shale, schist, and clay to a lesser extent.
Our vineyards are complemented by four different microclimates. This natural variation of weather, along with soil, drainage and altitude from vineyard to vineyard enables us to produce a wide range of wines with distinct qualities and character, all within the same area.
The composition of our vineyards significantly contributes to the quality of our wines. Our vineyards span over 3000 hectares, with the majority being unirrigated and untrellised, yielding a very low long-term average of 7.8 tons per hectare. The structure and complexity in these smaller dry land berries bring intense colour, added body and exceptional flavour – a marked difference from their irrigated competitors.
Perdeberg is located in the Agter-Paarl area whereby the
various microclimates have a huge influence on the natural
taste of wines from this particular area. The Agter-Paarl is
particularly famous for its top Chenin Blanc production with
numerous award-winning wines over many years.
