Power and concentration, within a tightly woven structure showing lots of promise. Generous cassis and black berries as well as vanilla and spice from oak. Complex and multi-dimensional. Those who can resist the temptation will be rewarded well with cellaring.

Ageing Potential

15 years maturation should greatly reward with complexity and elegance.

Delicious matched with some slow-roasted rosemary lamb.

In The Vineyard

In The Cellar

The three cultivars were vinified and aged separately in small French oak barrels for 28 months, personally selected by the winemaker and then blended together.

Additional Information

Handcrafted by a family whose lifeblood is wine, the Steytler Range is the culmination of our estate’s best wines in only exceptional vintages. Tradition and four generations of Steytler passion forge these wines.

Style: Dry red wine blend (Cape Blend). First made in 2000, the 'Steytler Vision' is our Cape Blend. Cabernet Sauvignon exudes power, length and structure while our endemic Pinotage creates a uniquely South African feel. Gentle Merlot fruit binds it all together. The aptly named Steytler Vision is the realisation of Danie Snr’s innovation and craftsmanship.
