Things to do
We cultivate grapes of the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties amongst a few others. The vineyards are situated between 250m and 400m above sea level exposing the grapes to a range of micro climates. Mediterranean-like conditions found in the Western Cape means dry summers and high winter rainfalls of 1000mm. The Franschhoek Valley also experiences the south-easter which helps bring in cooler air allowing for a longer ripening period.
Pale straw with green tinges. This wine displays an abundance of tropical fruit characters on the nose, including passion fruit, white peach, mango, guava and limes. The palate is layered with complexity and mouth coating texture, whilst still offering a fresh and zesty appeal.
Youthful in appearance, on the nose there is generous amounts of violets, black fruits, pepper and spice. The palate displays some meaty, leathery and blackcurrant notes and yet remains very fresh and elegant with a well-rounded and polished tannin profile.
Our Little Rock Rouge 2016 is a blended wine of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with dollops of Syrah and Petit Verdot all lending a helping hand to the final blend. Deep purple in colour, this wine abounds in vibrant red fruit aromas reminiscent of crushed cranberries and raspberries. The palate is long and elegant with hints of vanilla and dark chocolate with fine, polished tannins. This wine strikes a perfect balance between easy-drinking and complexity showing a balanced fruit profile and a smooth, soft palate. We create this wine to be enjoyed for all occasions!
The Little Rock Blanc is a very fresh and clean wine, blended and bottled to be enjoyed every day. A blend of four
different cultivators, namely Semillon, Viognier, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc give this wine a pale straw green colour with an inviting fruit profile of peaches and citrus notes. The palate is elegant with balanced texture and acidity. This is an alluring wine that is both approachable and generous in all respects.

Our wine tasting isn't just a special event – it’s an everyday occurrence. We can organise wine tastings in a variety of locations, including in Miko Restaurant, at our bar, at the Country Kitchen and in our wine cellar (as you might expect!).
If you'd like to arrange a visit please call +27 (0)21 876 2770.
Our 150 year old wine cellar was previously used as a fruit packing shed for the early settlers. Since being converted to a traditional wine cellar we can now process close to 110 tons of grapes in a season, these smaller volumes afford more concentration on quality rather than quantity. Stainless steel tanks aid in the making of the crisp clean whites, while barrels are favoured for the red wine making.
If you'd like to arrange a visit please call +27 (0)21 876 2770. Wines are available to purchase.
