Made only in the best vintages, from the best vineyards, our flagship blend is selected from a handful of barrels, no matter the variety. A true Swartland wine.
The final blend is returned to barrels to mature and knit together until bottling, where it sits for a further two years or more before release. The ultimate expression of the fruit of the Earth guided by the Hand of Man.
The Signature wine is named after South Africa’s traditional spice blend. A sum of many parts selected for their ability to express the soils of the Swartland harmoniously, Chakalaka is a blend of six grape varieties; a reflection of our cultural diversity and our desire to show place before grape.
The Amos Block
South Africa’s oldest Sauvignon Blanc vineyard, planted in 1965 still rests on Klein Amoskuil farm. Farmed meticulously every year, this vineyard only transcends the Swartland in the most clement vintages. The Spice Route team is able to bottle a small amount of wine ever so often from this treasured block, which is fondly named The Amos Block.
