About this winery:
Survivor is a boutique winery which produces premium wines. Chardonnay grapes are sourced from cool climate region Elgin, close to the Atlantic Ocean, where the combination of climate-moderating factors give slower ripening and thus more-balanced wine with great complexity. The Pinotage and the Chenin bushvine grapes grow in the premium dry Swartland region, where the dominant soil is shale with pockets of granite and farming techniques are irrigation-free. Bush vines dig deep and give concentrated flavours in the grapes. The Nguni pictured on the label are a well known cattle breed in Southern Africa and regarded as a status symbol by the Zulu tribes.
