Koelenhof Winery

Koelenhof Wine Cellar is situated among vineyard-covered slopes, 14 kilometres outside the beautiful town of Stellenbosch in the Western Cape region of South Africa. It is a geographical location that attracts wine lovers from all over the world.

The grower-owned winery was established in 1941, with the De Vries family at the helm. Members of the family continue to play an integral role at the winery, supported by a dedicated team of staff and loyal partners. Today, Koelenhof presses an impressive 16,000 tons of grapes every year - the fruit of the labour and commitment of 70 local shareholders.

Despite earning an enviable array of awards, Koelenhof remains humble in spirit. Recently, Koelenhof received top honours as South Africa’s Best Value Cellar Overall in WINE Magazine’s Best Value Wine Guide. Koelenhof’s own label wines succeed in offering the ever elusive combination of superb quality married with excellent value.

The winemakers take pride and pleasure in producing two ranges of wine, Koelenhof and Koelenbosch, each one with its own unique characteristics. Ranging from easy-drinking wines for everyday enjoyment, to the elegantly packaged classical varieties, wine lovers are bound to discover Koelenhof wines that suit their needs and/or desires perfectly.
Koelenhof Cellar Koelenhoffer Sauvignon Blanc
This is a fruity off-dry wine with peach and nectarine on the nose followed by melon and tropical fruit flavors on the palate. Pleasant and easy to drink, therefore satisfying the taste of many a guest.

Koelenhof Cellar Koelnektar Gewurztraminer
Koelnektar is a semi-sweet white wine made from 100% Gewürztraminer grapes. The nose boasts with aromas of lychee, Turkish delight and soft rose petals. The lychee and Turkish delight follows through on the palate with a slight spicy undertone. Sweetness suits Gewürztraminer, in this case giving a full, rounded mouthfeel, which fitted the style and added to the appeal.

Koelenhof Cellar Pinotage
This wine has a vibrant red color with rich cherry, and a slight sweet caramel aroma on the nose. This Pinotage has a strong tannin structure with a hint of chocolate and a touch of white pepper on the finish.

Koelenbosch Sangiovese
This medium bodied Sangiovese offers pleasant aromas with a touch of spiciness. On the palate it displays a combination of vibrant strawberry, blackcurrant and cherry. The beautiful tannin structure rounds off this lovely wine.

Koelenbosch Nineteenfortyone
This wine has a deep red colour with a bouquet of black currant, spice and plum. There are prune and apricot flavours on the finish. A blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 15% Pinotage.

Koelenbosch Chardonnay MCC
Our 3rd vintage was made from carefully nurtured Chardonnay grapes and after 27 months of lees contact, following the 2nd bottle fermentation the Brut Cap Classique was disgorged. The sparkling wine had a further 17 months of rest before releasing to the public. This fresh sparkling wine has a delicate yeasty nose with lime and melon undertones, finishing with butterscotch on the mouth.
