Trizanne Signature Wines, Elim & Swartland

In every bottle there is the story of where the wine is from, and this is certainly true for the wines from Trizanne

Graduating from Stellenbosch University with a degree in viticulture and oenology, Trizanne Barnard worked multiple vintages in Australia, France and Portugal and afterwards began working in the winemaking team at Klein Contantia and Anwilka wines. It was after this, in 2008 that she started to make her own wines, with a focus on two very diverse regions of Elim and Swartland.

In the Swartland summers are hot and dry, with cold, wet winters. Viticulture is practiced with minimal irrigation. This, coupled with the Mediterranean climate is ideal for Syrah and Grenache and produces low yields of small but intensely flavoured berries. The unique terroir of Elim with its prevailing winds provides a very cool ripening season, ideal for Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
