Wine information
Opstal’s rich history dates back to 1847 when JC Rossouw acquired the farm De Opstal bij de Fonteine. Just over a century later in 1950, 4th generation Carl Everson decided to continue making his own wine instead of joining the local co-operative winery like many other producers. The estate is now in its 7th generation, with Attie Louw making fantastic wine across its three labels. Their Cape Red Blend shows lovely blackcurrant, cherry, mulberry and pepper spice aromas on the nose with a touch of cedar from barrel maturation. Medium to full-bodied, with the Cinsault providing an bit of freshness and zip, finishing dry.

Robin says "The Carl Everson labels are the flagship, "cream of the crop" wines of Opstal Estate. Their red blend provides lots of spice, smoke and fruit compote flavours in a nicely rounded but gently structured palate."
