Restless River wines are handcrafted by the Wessels family on their farm in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, next door to the coastal village of Hermanus in the Western Cape, South Africa. The farm is owned and run by Craig and Anne, winemaker and manager respectively.

Tasting notes:
'Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley property Restless River is increasingly known for producing a benchmark Chardonnay but perhaps it’s worth pondering the impact of the cool-climate Cabernet Sauvignon that they also make in establishing their reputation. Getting the product mix right is an important part of brand management and owner/winemaker Craig Wessels relates that when he and his wife Anne first acquired the property, they were advised to pull up the Cab! Wessels was having none of that, however.

The wine under this label made on an experimental basis and different from year to year. From Dieux Donne grapes, winemaking involved carbonic maceration for five weeks before 15 months of maturation in barrique and amphorae. The nose is shy but beguiling with notes of lime, peach and elderflower while the palate is lean, fresh and savoury on the finish – angular in the best way, a striking example of the variety.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 94/100
