Pierre Jourdan Brut

The Pierre Jourdan range was named after the French Huguenot to whom the original Franschhoek farm was granted. This wine was first produced by Achim von Arnim in 1986, making this the first wine in the Pierre Jourdan portfolio. This wine was produced in the traditional French method of bottle fermentation, known in South Africa as ‘Methode Cap Classique’. Expect delicate yeasty aromas on the nose, complemented by fresh citrus flavours and a crisp acidity. In typical French tradition Chardonnay allows for freshness, while Pinot Noir contributes to the body and structure of the wine.

Pierre Jourdan Tranquille

This is a gentle elegant wine with a fragrant bouquet, fine fruit and a dry finish. Its low alcohol makes this an ideal companion for a hot summer’s day or a lunch time meal.

Haute Cabriere Pinot Noir/Chardonnay

First created in 1994 from the classic blend traditionally reserved for sparkling wines, the Haute Cabrière Chardonnay Pinot Noir was the first South African still wine produced in this style. Today, this wine is one of South Africa’s most iconic white blends, proudly produced by the von Arnim family in Franschhoek.

Haute Cabriere Pinot Noir Unwooded

This unwooded style of Pinot Noir is light and elegant with an abundance of red fruit on the palate. Best served chilled.

Haute Cabriere Pinot Noir

A noble cultivar with typically small berries, Pinot Noir expresses terroir and records vintage very accurately. At Haute Cabriére the von Arnim family believes that oak should only support and not overpower this delicate varietal. This wine was produced from exceptional blocks planted on the Franschhoek property.

Pierre Jourdan Ratafia

The Pierre Jourdan range was named after the French Huguenot to whom the original Franschhoek farm was granted. Ratafia is the only other wine style created in the Champagne region in France, hence it was a natural addition to the range.
