Joostenberg Estate ‘Bakermat’ 2020


Syrah 47%, Cabernet Sauvignon 19%, Mourvédre 24%, Touriga Nacional 9%, Merlot 1%

Bakermat, meaning “birth-place” or “cradle” in Dutch, pays homage to Joostenberg, home of the Myburgh family for 6 generations. This is the premium red wine from the estate and every effort has been taken to ensure that it is a genuine expression of the Joostenberg terroir.

All grapes were hand-picked. The Mourvedre was wholebunch feremented while the Syrah was partially de-stemmed, and all other varieties were totally de-stemmed. Fermentation occured in open-topped tanks and the wine was then matured in 500L French oak barrels for the first 12 months. Thereafter matured 50 % in concrete and 50% in 500L barrels for another 12 months.

Tyrrel & Anette Myburgh Tyrrel and Anette are the 5th generation of Myburghs on the Joostenberg farm in Paarl. They strongly believe in the fundamental importance of origin. This manifests itself in the vineyards by farming organically and often without irrigation. The winemaking philosophy avoids obtrusion as much as they deem is possible without compromising quality.
