Klein Optenhorst Launch Their Pinot Noir Cap Classique – Wellington’s First!

Yesterday morning Klein Optenhorst in Wellington’s Bovlei Valley launched their 1st vintage of Pinot Noir Cap Classique with an Open Garden. Klein Optenhorst is owned by Naas and Jenny Ferreira who have over the years established their terraced garden which is home to one of the biggest collections of Salvias in Southern Africa. The nineteenth century farmhouse overlooks a large dam with views of the Groenberg. A small nursery was established a few years ago and stocks an interesting selection of rare plants.

In 1990 they planted half a hectar of Pinot Noir, and from this renowned bubbly maker Pieter Ferriera has produced this wonderful Methode Cap Classique. Only 1592 bottles were made, I’ve got my case in stock and strongly recommend that you get one too – soon. It’s fantastic, but best collected at Klein Optenhorst so that you can take some time in their mesmerising garden … See www.kleinoptenhorst.com/
