Notes

The 1994 Bordeaux blend, simply named ‘Stellenzicht’, is equally as fascinating as the '94 Syrah, showing beautiful freshness and precision.

A 31-year-old Andre van Rensburg, ‘bespectacled, tousle-haired, informal, is a man possessed,’ writes Platter for the 1997 edition, started at Stellenzicht in late 1993 after a stint at Warwick. Having applied for the position earlier in the year, his appointment as the winemaker at both Stellenzicht and Neethlingshof was a last minute deal at two of the hottest properties in Stellenbosch. Neil Ellis was a consultant at the time and gave the owner, Hans Schrieber, full confidence that young van Rensburg could do the job. ‘I knew nothing about the farms or the vineyards,’ Andre confessed to me this week. But it seems he wasn’t short of talent, his former professor, Joel van Wyk, remarked on what a brilliant student he was and how he had ‘his own mind’ and always focused on quality.
