Oak Valley

Oak Valley

All Wines

At Oak Valley we focus on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Classically styled and beautifully crafted. These are distinct, elegant wines, sourced from vineyards in the Elgin Valley.

FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH

SAUVIGNON BLANC

Along the lower foothills of the Groenlandberg Mountain, Sir Antonie Viljoen, the founder of Oak Valley, discovered a crystal clear fresh water spring. So good was this water that Sir Antonie had it piped over many miles to his home and proclaimed it the Fountain of Youth.

STONE & STEEL

RIESLING

During 1898, the year in which Sir Antonie Viljoen purchased Oak Valley, plans were underway to build a pioneering railway from Sir Lowry’s Pass to Caledon. Elgin existed in isolation until the track opened in 1902. The line was chiselled out of solid rock to conquer Sir Lowry’s Pass, the steepest gradient in the country. And so this solid steel on quarried stone would inspire an era of prosperity in Elgin. The era of Stone & Steel.

BENEATH THE CLOUDS

CHARDONNAY

The South-Easter, known locally as the Cape Doctor, is our prevailing wind in summer. In Elgin, the Cape Doctor blows cold sea air over the vineyards and blankets the valley under cloud. These clouds lower our daytime temperatures and slow the ripening of our chardonnay grapes, leading to better flavour development. Herein lies the magic of Beneath the Clouds.

SOUNDS OF SILENCE

PINOT NOIR

High on the southern slopes of the Groenland Mountains lies an isolated vineyard exposed to the elements of our cold climate. Wind whistles through the neighbouring fynbos, the only sound that breaks this eerie silence at altitude. Our Pinot Noir takes comfort in austerity. It thrives on hardship. And it lives alone in the Sounds of Silence.

Oak Valley

GROENLANDBERG

CHARDONNAY

The Groenlandberg Chardonnay is hand-picked and sourced from our mountain block situated on a south-facing slope at an altitude of 430m. The high altitude, unique microclimate, and gentle winemaking practices, create a wine that is delicate, yet rich in character, carrying a strong sense of place.

GROENLANDBERG

PINOT NOIR

The Groenlandberg Pinot Noir is sourced from a selection of south-facing vineyards situated between 430m and 470m above sea level. There is minimal intervention in the cellar. Whole-bunch fermentations, gentle punch downs and a careful approach to oak maturation, create a delicate Pinot that expresses wonderful fruit and a strong sense of place.
