Die Kluise performs a fine balancing act. It must be tasty enough to perk up, even entertain, a demanding palate, yet fluid enough to be a deliciously deft all-rounder. Best served somewhere between cold and cool, there is no right nor wrong. The dry farmed vineyards are IPW certified sustainable in Swartland, a region named after the local rhinoceros bush, the flora equivalent of Mediterranean garrigue, that
low-scrubland bush often found on seacoasts.
Die Kluise (pronounced Dee Close) is Afrikaans for The Vaults, the name of our 12 th Century stone cellars in the Port of Leith, Scotland. These are some of the oldest commercial cellars in the UK and their thick granite walls, allow a humid 12c year-round. Built into the walls and portrayed on our front label is the Porter’s Stone, dated 1678, the original of which lies in the Museum of Scotland. It pays homage to the guild which moved wine off the ships and into wharfs and cellars like The Vaults. It
affords a unique glimpse of this once historic port, at the centre of the British wine trade.
