The dress code is informal. Ormonde Ormonde Private cellar is situated along the picturesque South African West Coast, nestled in the Darling Hills. The Estate looms over the icy Atlantic Ocean at altitudes of up to 350m above sea level. Located a mere 4km from the ocean, the sea breeze graces the vineyards with coolness and moisture. This ensures ideal conditions for preserving flavour and acidity on the estate’s whites, but also moderate summer temperatures, extending the growth season, producing reds with depth and intensity.Adré Rheeder, viticulturist with twenty years of experience, oversees the estate’s vineyards. He regularly addresses challenges presented by wind and the steep slopes on which the vines are planted on. The small dry land grape bunches are all handpicked into small crates and transported to the modern gravity based cellar, strategically built in the centre of the estate’s vineyards.Here third generation proprietor Theo Basson pours his passion into each bottle bearing the Ormonde seal of approval. He places great emphasis on primary varietal character to allow the unique terroir to be expressed in every wine. The most recent award was presented to the Grenache 2015 from the Ondine range of speciality cultivars. This wine was announced National winner in its class at the SA Terroir awards, once again earning confirmation that the unique style from this small appellation is appreciated and rewarded. Two double platinum medals, as well as four double golds, were awarded to wines from Ormonde earlier this year at the South African TOP 100 awards. Ormonde Private cellar offers a superior selection of wines ranging from the flagship Heritage collection, the Barrel Selected, Ondine speciality range and the single vineyard “Chip off the old Block” range.
