Meet the producer

This is a small 200,000-bottle winery in Banghoek, on the Helshoogte Pass between Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. It’s...



Silvermyn's vines cling to the steep slopes of Simonsburg's south-eaastern face some 320-540m above sea level on thin, decomposed granite soils. The grapes were hand-harvested, crushed and destemmed. Skin contact of 6 hrs was given. The juice was then pressed and cold settled for 2 days at 8 C. It was inoculated with a terroir selected yeast strain. After fermentation the wine was left on the fine leese upon which it was clarified for bottling. There was no malolactic fermentation or wood aging.

Tasting notes

Light yellow in colour with hints of lime green, the nose shows aromas of lightly tropical fruit such as green melon, kiwi fruit and guava. This character is true to the Banghoek terroir - lots of gooseberry zip, linear, crisp and racy. This is a bright, zesty wine with youthful acidity leading to a multi-layered palate showing distinct mineral and fresh lime flavours on the finish.

Food match
