Gabriëlskloof is a beautiful wine estate located near Bot River in the Overberg region east of Cape Town. It was purchased in 2001 by Bernhard Heyns, who had been on the lookout for the ideal place to plant vines. After planting, his first vintage was in 2009. Peter-Allan Finlayson, Bernhard’s son-in-law, took over as winemaker from the 2015 vintage.

The fruit for this single vineyard Cabernet Franc is sourced from a mountainside site on the Gabriëlskloof estate. Prevailing southerly winds from the nearby Atlantic Ocean create a cool mesoclimate, which promotes complex aromatics and fresh acidity. The vines are planted on a combination of Bokkeveld Shale and Table Mountain Sandstone, which limit vigour and result in intensely concentrated fruit.
