Region: Stellenbosch, South Africa

The Smokkelman Red Blend 2020 comes from the renowned Stellenbosch wine region, known for its diverse terroir and Mediterranean climate. The combination of well-drained soils, warm days, and cool nights allows the grapes to develop rich and complex flavors, making Stellenbosch a prime region for producing high-quality red wines.



The climate in Stellenbosch is characterized by warm to hot summers and mild winters, with cooling influences from the nearby ocean. This Mediterranean climate provides an ideal environment for grape cultivation, allowing for slow, even ripening and development of complex flavors and aromas.
