The Walker Bay wine district is unique due to its proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and this ensures that the climate here is predominantly cool to very cool (cool-climate), allowing the grapes to build a nice balance between ripe fruit and fresh acidity. As with the Creation winery, the wines from this region have an old-world style and the wines are very similar to wines from Burgundy, among others.

The vineyards of Springfontein are located on calcareous soil - Alkaline with a high mineral content. The fermentation ferments in small stainless steel tanks with native yeasts.

The Springfontein Cape Moby Red is a blend of 43% Pinotage, 35% Merlot, 14% Shiraz, 6% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. In the glass, the Moby Red has a bright purple-red color with red berries, strawberry, sweet cherries and a touch of cedar in the nose. In the mouth, this red Springfontein is supple with soft tannins, elegant, refined spiciness, laurel, juicy. Goes very well with spicy dishes, pork, grilled steak and aged cheeses.

Platters ***(*)
Exuberantly ripe fruity character on 2017 from pinotage, merlot & 3 others; characterful if not concentrated, with modest tannic grip. 14.7% alcohol.
