The Burger and Morkel families released the first Roodekrantz wines in 2015. Committed to preserve ancient Certified Old Vine Heritage Vineyards, they work closely with their growers, encouraging respectful and sustainable vineyard practices. No new oak ensures the quality of the fruit and terroir shine through in every bottle.
Sourced from vines planted in 1977. Intense yet refined aromas of citrus fruits alongside peach, flowers and hints of herbs. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine display a bright and refreshing acidity and a saline finish.
Roodekrantz is a project that sees two families steeped in wine – the Morkels and the Burgers – combining to channel old-vine fruit from large commercial blends into premium bottlings. Made using fruit sourced from a 1977-planted vineyard, the wine’s nose shows citrus, peach, flowers and herbs, while the palate has great fruit definition, bright acidity and a saline finish.
