Partnership Vineyards is the joint initiative of Riebeek Cellars and the people from the Riebeek Valley aiming to make and market wine in an effort to uplift the community and give everyone a sense of belonging. “Together we planted vineyards on a specially selected piece of Africa and today we raise our glasses to standing together as a more united nation.” A crisp and fresh style of Sauvignon Blanc with delicate green flavours.
Made in a definite herbaceous style, this Sauvignon Blanc also offers tropical undertones of gooseberries that add fruit to the palate. Well-balanced with zesty acids, every glassful is fresh and crisp and perfect for warm summer days.
In 2004, Riebeek Valley Wine Partners, in conjunction with Riebeek Cellars, made history in the Valley, planting 15 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc vineyards to launch the Riebeek Valley’s first wine empowerment initiative.
Aptly named Partnership Vineyards, this Fairtrade venture has proved a model of co-operation and sustainability. Consisting entirely of unirrigated trellised vines, the methods employed at Partnership represent a progressive move towards practices well suited to wine making in a hot, dry region. The superb Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz that emerge, bursting with fruit and character, are just reward.
