by | Mar 23, 2022 | Article, News, Wineland

Windmeul Cellar’s premium wines’ 2019 vintage is testament to the Paarl-based wine producer’s track record of creating exceptional wines.

The Legend Collection’s Chenin Blanc 2019 and Pinotage 2019 succeed vintages that consistently achieved top ratings at the likes of the Michelangelo Wine Awards, Veritas, John Platter’s Wine Guide, ABSA Top 10 Pinotage and Standard Bank Chenin Blanc Top 10 competitions. For decades, Windmeul Cellar has secured its place as a top wine producer and is in no measure planning to slow their momentum in delivering wines that are both versatile and distinguished.

“With 78 years of wine production to look back on, we can confidently say that Windmeul Cellar is an experienced hand at making wines of remarkable quality,” says cellar master, Danie Marais.

“When it comes to our elite range, you don’t have to take our word to prove its quality. We believe in taking credit when it is due and are proud to place good value on our premium wines.” Marais has worked in the wine industry for more than 30 years. This is his 23rd year at the reins of the Windmeul Cellar team.

Windmeul Cellar produces three wine ranges where The Legend Collection is the most high-end. The wines were initially created in 2010 to pay tribute to those who continue to inspire others to initiate and experience life’s splendour without compromise.

From parents to childhood role models, the meticulous winemaking process of the limited Collection reflects the appreciation of day-to-day heroes who merits to be celebrated.

“A lot of heart went into making these wines. If they can be experienced as a special keepsake or gift for the day-to-day ‘legend’, then we are on the right track,” says senior winemaker, Abraham van Heerden.

The Legend Collection was further inspired by the late veteran Springbok player and a previous Windmeul Cellar director, Theunis Petrus Daniel (TPD) Briers.

The range underpins Briers’ contributions to the development of an adored sport as well as South Africa’s wine sector. Marais thought it ideal for prolonging Briers’ legacy with this high-level wine range.

“Much like those who grew up admiring their mentors or idols, I have always followed Briers’ success.

We wanted to emboss Briers’ honour in a wine that mirrors the quality of his influence in various fields. It made sense to extend this sentiment to individuals who continue to make an impact on those who look up to them. May it be your work colleague, a good friend or family member.”

A limited number of approximately 400 bottles of The Legends Collection’s Chenin Blanc 2019 and 500 bottles of the Pinotage 2019 are currently available. The Chenin Blanc costs R250 a bottle and the Pinotage costs R350 a bottle.

A custom three-pack valued from R750 can be beautifully assembled in a special casing for courier and gifting. A wine club membership entitles you to a 10% discount. The wines are available at Windmeul Cellar in Paarl and online.
