Bordeaux Varietals

Our reputation is built on The High Road pillars. Following the benchmark set by respected négociants from France, we buy in premium quality Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec grapes – the classic red Bordeaux varietals.

Cabernet Sauvignon performs particularly well in Stellenbosch. It is arguably the strongest red cultivar in South Africa, which is why Les Sweidan insisted that it should be the backbone of our wines. The resultant blends and the accolades speak to the success of the Bordeaux paradigm we’re upholding.

This single-minded dedication to Bordeaux-style wines saw the induction of Les Sweidan into the Commanderie de Bordeaux en Afrique de Sud, the South African chapter of the worldwide Commanderie that unites producers and wine lovers who share a passion for Bordeaux.
