“Skerpioen (Scorpion) is a wine from a very unique location halfway between Dwarskersbos and Elands Bay on the West Coast. One of the most amazing aspects of this location is the fact that the soils are chalky (limestone). In addition to that it is one of the coolest parts of the Swartland region, located a mere 2km from the Atlantic Ocean, but it is also a very dry area with an average rainfall of around 300mm per year. This location is home to some of the most intense south-easterly winds and the old vines look almost abused after having been battered by winds and blowing sand for years and years. The character of the wines that yield from this area is mostly trademarked by being extremely salty and saline, with some limey tones. Year after year this is our white wine with the highest level of natural acidity and the lowest percentage of alcohol.” – Producer Note
