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 Sixpence red is an easy-drinking wine that opens up with notes red berries, plum compote and a fine layer of smoke before leading to a moderately rich finish. Even on its own, with your feet on the couch next to the fireplace, this wine could easily be your best friend!
Robin says "Opstal's Sixpence wines are their entry-level range that offer an abundance of appeal. This Bordeaux blend is no exception. Fruit-driven, juicy and dark fruited."
