The Shiraz vineyards of Zandvliet are planted mainly in the direction of the prevailing winds, on the gentle slopes of the foothills south of the Cogmans river flowing through the estate. The clayey soils are limestone-rich contributing salty, mineral characters and elegance to the wine. As a result, Zandvliet Shiraz remains one of South Africa's favourite red table wines.
