Elgin

A mere 10km from the ocean, this valley benefits from cold winters with abundant rainfall, followed by cool South Easterly sea breezes in the summer. The cool summers allow for a longer ripening period which produces grapes with concentration, fruit intensity and elegant tannins. The soils range from white mineral sandstone and quartz soils known as Table Mountain sandstone to deep red clay soils from the parent rocks of Kouebokkeveld shale and koffieklip. Average altitude 300 metres.
