About Silkbush Altitude Red Blend

Silkbush Altitude Red Blend shows flavors of dark black fruit and cassis wrapped up in soft, comforting oak hints and a caress of vanilla and spice. This wine is a marriage of all vineyard blocks on the highest slopes of the property, above the sweeping Breedekloof valley, an hour and a half’s drive north of Cape Town. This wine reflects the uniqueness of the high-altitude vineyards: the combination of soil, slope, climate, aspect, altitude, and grape variety sets this apart from other wines. These vineyards are all on an elevation of 600m+, planted in ancient, decomposed granite soil, right up against the emphatic slopes of the Waaihoek Mountains.

About Silkbush

Silkbush Mountain Vineyards hails its name from the Sybasberg (Afrikaans for Silkbush Mountain), one of the highest peaks above the winery’s vineyards. Sybasberg by its turn gets its name from the Sybasboom (Silkbush) that grows in isolated corners of our mountain. The Silkbush leaves, when torn, produce silky threads of latex – hence its name. Just as special and unique as the Silkbush is, so are the soils, slopes, and vineyards. This is manifested in our wines – you can taste the unique mountain terroir.
