Project Description


The Swartland, named after the endemic Renosterbos vegetation that turns black after rain, is known for rich, opulent wines and is particularly well suited to Shiraz, Grenache, and Chenin Blanc.

Fairtrade, a global initiative, seeks to improve the lives of farm workers. Stonedance wines are Fairtrade accredited, with farm workers participating in a trust that owns a significant portion of the business. A levy is channelled back to the workers and utilised for the building of clinics, créches as well as for educational support.

This blend of mainly Shiraz and Grenache Noir is made from vineyards growing on deep, red,
well drained clay loam soils – a soil type known as ‘Hutton’.
Full bodied with lots of juicy ripe plums and red fruit on the palate with aromas of spice and freshly
cracked black pepper.
Well balanced oak and elegant soft tannin structure on the aftertaste.
Granite is one of the main soil formations of the Western Cape and produces wine with structure and
concentration, as showcased in this blend of mainly Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier.
Generous fruit on the nose, hints of green apple and peach, is followed with some citrus on the palate
and a floral lift on the lingering finish.
Good balance of acidity. Chalky.
