Wines are the story of what came before. In the case of experienced winemaker Pieter Rossouw’s new creation, everything began with the grandfathers in whose honour he names his inaugural range - Gabriel & Gysbert.

Currently comprising a Chardonnay and a Cabernet Sauvignon, Gabriel & Gysbert speaks of heritage as well as exceptional terroir. Bottled from the 2021 vintage, their fruit hails from the family farm in the age-old winelands of Bonnievale - where Pieter was raised.

Gabriel & Gysbert Wines are easily recognisable by their distinct label - its resemblance to a typical country quilt in shades of blue, grey, white and black is of course no accident. “When I was small, my mum made me a quilt. She used designs reflecting my favourite things, all arranged around a farmhouse. It would forever show where I came from,” says Pieter.

The Gabriel & Gysbert Ijsland Chardonnay gets its name from the windswept hill where its grapes thrive. They hail from twin vineyards, planted in 2003 and 2004 on opposing slopes. Each block brings its own unique character and together, a vivacious harmony of lime, fruit, and bold flintiness in the 2021 vintage.

The Gabriel & Gysbert Kwartskop Cabernet Sauvignon was made from a small vineyard on a southerly slope. When you approach it in the afternoon, sunlight reflected off stones in the vineyard is the first hint one gets of the white quartz bedrock on which these vines are planted. Together, the effects of light and rock weave this wine’s distinct, fruit-driven personality.

The Ijsland Chardonny 2021 and Kwartskop Cabernet Sauvignon 2021 are available online from the website as well as selected retailers countrywide.
