Anwilka is located in the Helderberg subregion of Stellenbosch, South Africa. The property was founded in the late 1990’s by Lowell Jooste, former co-owner of Klein Constantia, along with Hubert de Bouard de Laforest, owner of Chateau Angelus, and Bruno Prats, former owner of Chateau Cos d’Estournel. In 2012 the property merged with Klein Constantia, with Laforest and Prats remaining as partners. The 98 acre property is located four miles from the South Atlantic Ocean. The maritime influence helps to preserve the natural acidity of the grapes over an extended growing season. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot are planted on gentle slopes of well-draining, iron-rich soil. The yields are managed by rigorous pruning and green harvesting. Piet Neethling manages the vineyards and Jean du Plessis makes the wines. The grapes are hand-picked, sorted before destemming, and sorted again prior to crushing. Stainless steel tronconic fermentors are gravity fed, and the wine is pumped over and undergoes extended post-fermentation maceration. Anwilka has since established a worldwide reputation for its red blends which have been described by Robert Parker as “the finest red wine I have ever had from South Africa”.
Technical notes
(48% Syrah/42% Cabernet Sauvignon/10% Petit Verdot). The varieties were matured separately for 6 months in French oak (50% new) before the lots were blended and aged for an additional nine months.

Other text
A deep ruby edged with a youthful ruby rim, the presents enticing notes of oak spice and violets. On the palate are vivid flavors of redcurrant, and damson, framed by supple tannins, and carried by a fine thread of acidity. The finish is long, fresh and complex.

Producer
Klein Constantia is custodian to some of the most historic vineyards in South Africa and, indeed, the world. The unique location, climate and soils of our estate call for the making of terroir-driven wines, and it is to this principle that we are deeply committed. Simple winemaking techniques are used to extract the best from grapes grown in expertly nurtured vineyards in the aim of making consistently excellent wines. We strive to produce wines of high quality that express elements of elegance, minerality and balance. As a BWI champion (Biodiversity in Wine Initiative) our vision is aligned with that of the World Wildlife Fund as we aim to unite conservation and agricultural development in a complementary, mutually beneficial manner. We continually strive to produce wines in more environmentally responsible and biodynamic ways. Our wine range includes a top quality Estate range, a second label KC range, and our flagship revival of the famous Constantia sweet wine, Vin de Constance. We also produce limited volumes of Perdeblokke (a premium single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc), a Methode Cap Classique Brut, and a Chardonnay.
