Ultra Premium

Friesland M-Klas ("M-Class") Cabernet Sauvignon

Dense opaque colour. Grapes came from old Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Bottelary Hills of Stellenbosch; named after 4th generation owner De Bruyn's wife Marilise who shares the wine’s characteristics of class, strength, beauty and elegance.

Friesland Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon

Dark maroon core with a bright red rim. The Merlot (60%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) components were sourced from older vines grown on well drained soils in the Bottelary/Simonsberg ward of Stellenbosch.

Friesland Sauvignon Blanc

Brilliant clear colour. Grapes were sourced from south- to southwestern facing slopes at higher altitude and picked early morning; given limited skin contact and handled reductively throughout, the wine is fruit driven and crisp and benefitted from extended lees contact.
Super Premium

Friesland Broer & Shuster Shiraz, Grenache

Soils comprise decomposed Table Mountain sandstone and layered "koffieklip"; grapes were hand harvested; the Broer & Suster Shiraz-Grenache is a smart blend combining the masculine robustness and body of Shiraz with the feminine elegance and fruit driven profile of Grenache and celebrates siblings making great wine together. Dark purple plum core with a magenta red rim.
Super Premium

Friesland Berg & See Chenin Blanc

Bright straw colour with a green tinge. The wine comes mostly from an old bush vine single vineyard planted in 1982 and at high altitude of around 1,000m; the name celebrates the glorious Stellenbosch hills and ocean’s proximity.
