Stark-Condé were named in the ‘First Growth’ category of Tim Atkin’s special report on South Africa in 2019 whilst winemaker Rudger van Wyk was named Young Winemaker of the Year 2019. All in all they’re very much an estate on the rise and we’re very excited to welcome them to the Museum Wines portfolio.
Tim Atkin scored the 2017 vintage Oude Nektar with 97 points and exclaimed “What a wine! What a vintage!” whilst John Platter gave it the coveted five star accolade.
This is the fourth vintage of this wine after re-planting in 2009. Their idea has always been to make what is essentially a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from this unique vineyard, however they’ve also blended in barrel selections of the best of their other vineyards. The Cabernet has a very intense cassis aroma with unique citrus-rind notes. It has a firmer tannin structure than many of our wines, but still with the elegance for which Jonkershoek Valley wines are known.
