Joostenberg is a small, family owned and managed wine farm producing an exclusive range of wine. Of special importance is their Chenin Blanc and Syrah (Shiraz) grape varietals. They place special emphasis on individuality, natural winemaking and environmental accountability through organic farming — full organic status was achieved in 2012.

The grapes were hand-picked, de-stemmed, lightly crushed and then fermented in small open-topped tanks. The varietals were harvested and fermented separately. After 10 months maturation in a combination of seasoned oak barrels and stainless steel tanks, the various batches were blended and the wine was bottled.

Made from a combination of estate vineyards and specially selected vineyards on neighbouring farms. All the vineyards lie on the south western edge of the Paarl region. The climate is Mediterranean - i.e. cold, wet winters and dry summers. Soils are a combination of decomposed granite and Malmesbury shale. Vine age varies from 15 to 19 years.
