Our 100% Cinsaut is derived from handpicked older dryland vines from Wellington. This robust red is naturally fermented with 30% whole bunch grapes, before being matured in older oak barrels and a cement egg for 12 months.


Right on the nose, notes of red cherry and raspberry pop out and delight, while hints of fynbos and spice add an earthy touch. A punchy red with fresh fruit purity and acidity, our Sorgvry boasts lovely crunchy tannins with a chalky textured finish that lingers on the palate.

Skoonskip, a cross between Pinot noir and Cinsaut (Hermitage), is soft on the palate and pleasantly fruity – quite unlike your regular, run-of-the-mill Pinotage! True to the Tempel Wines style, this ode to Pinot Noir and Cinsaut is enjoyably light at only 13% alcohol level. It was matured in French oak barrels (40% of which were new) for 12 months.

This is possibly our last Pinotage production – don’t miss out!


This full and vibrant wine is deep crimson in colour, with a pleasing aroma of cloves, plums, red berries and sweet spice on the nose. Juicy, yet elegant, the soft tannins add a smooth, lingering finish.

Oogwink, our 100% Shiraz, translates to “in the blink of an eye” – sexy & playful, just like this full-bodied red!
Matured for 12 months in French oak barrels (20% new oak) and a cement egg.


Our Shiraz grapes are grown in the cooler Elgin region, lending this wine a complex nose with spicy undertones of fynbos and white pepper. The palate is fresh and vibrant with a complex tannic structure and a long finish.

Layers of red fruit and spices, with savoury notes in the background, gives you a balanced wine which can be enjoyed for several years to come.
