PRODUCT OVERVIEW: 
The Robertson Valley is nestled in the shadow of the majestic Langeberg mountains, close to the Breede (“Broad”) River. It was here that the De Wet family purchased a large tract of land in 1859, subsequently channeling the river and planting the region’s first vineyards. In 1870, the land was divided among the founder’s three sons, and the youngest named his portion “Excelsior.” Today the estate is owned by Freddie and Peter de Wet, the fourth and fifth generation of De Wets to farm the property.*

Robertson’s limestone-rich, calcareous clay soils are ideal for grape cultivation. Excelsior boasts over 495 acres planted to noble grape varietals, with a focus on Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Shiraz. Excelsior has established a winning track record of quality and value. As Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate recently noted, “Excelsior…represents another of those South African instances where one wonders how the wines can possibly be well-made, distinctively packaged, exported to the States, and still sell for a mere ten dollars.”

Today's Cabernet is blended with 7% Petit Verdot and is sourced from vines aged 16-21 years. Stainless-steel fermented and aged in a combination of French and American oak barrels for nine months, it is medium-to-full-bodied, with aromas and flavors of blackberries, cassis, and black raspberries layered with savory herbs, wet stone, and woodsmoke.
