The boutique winery of Restless River is located in Hemel-en-Aarde where winemakers Craig and Anne Wessels are carefully making two Restless River wines. Established in 1999 in this very young wine region, the Restless River’s Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay vineyards represent some of the oldest in all of the valley. The fruit, sourced from tiny yields from vines planted on extremely diverse soils and located only 5km from the Atlantic Ocean, struggles to ripen in this particularly cold climate and lingers on the vine long into autumn, often harvested as late as May. All wines produced from Restless River are unfined as well as unfiltered.
The Restless River Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 is a highly elegant and perfumed wine expressing ripe blackcurrants and berries, crème de cassis, cherries and a lovely herbal fragrance. A sophisticated wine with a firm, fine tannin structure and a palate of rich fruit flavours with notes of savoury black olives and toasty oak which will develop further layers of complexity over time.
