Haskell Vineyards – Terroir
Helderberg Mountain Range, Western Cape
The greatest wines in the world are made from grapes grown on sites specifically suited to certain varieties. The way that the vine interacts with the soil, site, climate and growing conditions to produce grapes of unique character forms the basis of our understanding of the concept “terroir”.
Our focus has thus been towards finding ways to maximize the potential of our vineyards and across our 23-hectare Estate there are numerous changes of soil type and structure with pronounced differences in elevation and aspect from block to block. It is within this structure we have come to an understanding of our unique terroir and how to obtain the best from it, all of which will be taken into consideration as we prepare the replanting our first vines.
