Cloverfield Private Cellar

Wine of good fortune

The Marais family has about 110 hectares under vine. Mainly Chardonnay and Shiraz are grown here, but there are also Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Colombar, Chenin Blanc, Riesling, Cinsaut, Semillon and Petite Verdot. The vineyards lie between the Langeberg Mountain in the north and the Breede River in the south. There are two main soil types – one rich in lime, the other a very fertile alluvial oil found along the banks of the river.

The area surrounding Cloverfield is blessed with a healthy and generous climate. It is cold during the winter and this ensures even budding and ripening and good fruit. Though rainfall is not high, the rains fall late during the winter and this helps the grapes at the start of the growing season. Warmer conditions prevail in November and December, but then the cooling south-east winds from the Indian Ocean blow in across the valley.
