With CapeWine 2018 starting today, 12th September, the eleventh and last of the PIWOSA members’ exquisite works of #LiquidArt is being unveiled. Enter #SpringfieldEstate – What a Beauty!
The Bruwer family has been farming on the land, now known as Springfield Estate, for five generations. With generational knowledge handed down since 1902, vineyards are planted in specific sites to capture the best varietal characteristics of each cultivar. Many of the wines at Springfield are made using natural yeast, allowing the character and the individuality of the grape to truly show itself. Current custodians, brother-and- sister team Abrie and Jeanette Bruwer are always looking for the purest expression of the grape in the glass. This is achieved by their minimalist and ‘hands off’ approach to wine making – the grapes for all the red wines are uncrushed and unpressed – simply de-stemmed, macerated whole, and fermented on the skins. Farming, and making wine, is a series of small decisions that need to be made every day, and the family’s motto, ‘Made on Honour’, guides these decisions every step of the way.
PIWOSA look forward to welcoming you at CapeWine 2018
