The Belle Rebelle is the Beautiful Estate range. Winemaker Mariëtte exclusively uses grapes from Stofberg Family Vineyards for the production of these wines. It focuses on expressing the terroir of the Breedekloof and more specifically the soils on the farm. Vineyards are carefully managed to suit each of the vines. Due to the size of the operation, the grapes can be harvested when they are optimally ripe.

The Chenin Blanc grapes are harvested by hand in small containers. The grapes are then cooled before being lightly crushed and pressed. The free-run juice was allowed to settle overnight at 8°Centigrade. The juice is covered with carbon dioxide blankets to prevent oxidation. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at a constant temperature of 14 - 16°C for about 15 days.

The Belle Rebelle Mia Chenin Blanc has a pale straw yellow color with a bright green tint. They wanted to make a fresh and primary fruit-driven wine - as befits a good Chenin Blanc. The nose is lively with concentrated aromas of citrus and pineapple. On the palate, lime and grapefruit meet quince with a crisp, refreshing acidity. This is a perfectly balanced wine that should be enjoyed in good company. Being a fresh wine with lively fruit, it goes well with spring vegetables and salads, especially with chicken or with fruits such as apple or pear. Light seafood pasta dishes and risottos. Fresh line fish, smoked salmon or trout and it certainly goes well with oysters and sushi.


Vineyard for 2021 Belle Rebelle Mia Chenin Blanc

BREEDEKLOOF: The Du Toitskloof mountain range feeds the Breede River and our farm with crystal clear water. The Breedekloof Valley is home to some of the oldest soils in the world that come from the mountain ranges that surround it. These ancient soils have a great complexity that allows a wide range of grape varieties to be grown here. The temperate weather conditions during the growing season mean that the grapes have one of the longest growing seasons, hence it is known as the valley of slow maturing vines.

​STOFBERG FAMILY VINEYARDS: Pieter Stofberg, the owner of the farm has always believed that quality starts in the vineyard. The vineyards are carefully managed by hand, with operations such as sucking, leafing, tilting and harvesting still done by hand - in keeping with the concept of making truly handcrafted wines. Integrated pest control is applied on the farm with as little interference from nature as possible.
