Our wines all have character...


TEMPEL “INNOCENCE” Blanc de Noir Pinotage


A white pinotage is in itself an extremely rare item. INNOCENCE 2010 was the world’s second to be commercially released ever. The juice is gently bled from the mash after destemming and sorting of berries by hand. INNOCENCE spends 7 months in third fill French barrels for sublime oak flavours. A unique and serious wine that will add a new dimension to any culinary occasion. We now offer the 2017 vintage.
6 bottles per case in single layer flatpacks.
Cellar door Price: R140.00 /btl.

TEMPEL “EVIDENCE” Bush Vine Pinotage


The 2015 vintage Evidence boasts a bold, yet smooth, tannin structure and a deep, dark colour. You might enjoy it now, but the relationship is more likely to evolve into love, or even obsession, in a few years time. Prominent oak flavours are well balanced by opulent fruit. The vintage is virtually void of free sulphur, making it an adequate option for the sulphur sensitive.
Like all Tempel Wines in recent years, it is certified as an Estate Wine and a Single Vineyard Wine.
6 bottles per case in single layer flatpacks.
Cellar door Price: R125.00 /btl.

TEMPEL “3D” Bordeaux Blend 


Well in line with our brand promise to offer "Handcrafted Wines with Character", we  have launched the 2015 vintage of our South African interpretation of a Bordeaux Blend. Totally void of Old World routine contributors like Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, this smooth dinner companion was created from a base of 74% Malbec. The excitement on the nose and on the palate can largely be attributed to 13% each of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Together they offer a three-dimensional tasting experience. The wine is part of the "Drakein Collection" we introduced in 2014 with the launch of Six Senses.
6 bottles per case in single layer flatpacks.
Cellar door Price: R 140.00 /btl.

TEMPEL “SIX SENSES” Premium Blend


For three years now, Tempel has handcrafted this unique blend from untraditional propor- tions of six red varietals; Petit Verdot 24%, Cabernet Franc 20%, Syrah 20%, Malbec 16%, Zinfandel 10% and Sangiovese 10%. This multilayered dining wine was the first in a range of premium wines we call “Drakein Collection” and speaks to all your senses, even the sixth. All grapes were cold macera- ted and co-fermented as a cuvée in an open tank. The wine matured for 22 months in 60% new French barrels and 40% first fills. We just released the 2015 vintage.
6 bottles per case in single layer flatpacks.
Cellar door Price: R245.00 /btl.
