Org de Rac

At Org de Rac Organic Wine Estate, the winemaking process adheres to strict organic guidelines. Only half the sulphur content of conventional wine is allowed and no other chemical additives are used at all, creating wine with outstanding health benefits.

Org de Rac is much more than organic – more than vineyards, wine, lavender, rosemary, olives and no words for the fantastic view and beautiful surroundings. Up close and personal you’ll discover a true green heartbeat at the foot of the Piketberg, embracing the Swartland with a free spirit, living an organic dream and a biodiverse philosophy and constantly striving for balance between nature, people and business.

Org de Rac symbolises creation, conservation and respect for the virgin soil which belongs to tomorrow.

MCC Chardonnay 

A deep golden, rich honey colour with a vivacious tint of green. The wine has developed a voluptuous, complex nose rich in sundrenched apricot, peach, freshly baked bread and roasted almond complemented by a well-integrated wood character which will become more harmonious with time and bottle ageing. A crisp mouth feel with flavours of citrus especially fresh lime, velvety creaminess and lingering citrus aftertaste with the wood in harmony.

Org de Rac Chardonnay 

Irresistible aromas of tropical fruit are beautifully balanced by subtle oak and follow through on the palate. The lingering finish rewards with titillating lime and gorgeous butterscotch.

Org de Rac Merlot

An elegant yet vibrant wine. Lighter in style with a bouquet of berry, plum, cigar-box, a whiff of mint and a touch of dark chocolate. Generous on the palate with well-integrated oak and soft tannins supporting the delicate fruit flavours.

Org de Rac Shiraz 

Enticing aromas of black forest cake, ripe plum, cherry and vanilla beckon on the nose. On the palate subtle hints of roasted coffee bean combine with oak spice while delightful dried fruit flavours linger on the aftertaste.

Org de Rac Cabernet Sauvignon 

Distinctive aromas of tomato leaf, pencil shavings and mulberry beckon on the nose. A rich and well – rounded wine with sumptuous dark fruit flavours supported by velvety tannins.

Le Piquet Rose 

Multiple sites, clones, soil structures and yeasts have contributed to a surprisingly complex, mineral wine with distinct “European” leanings.

Merlot Reserve 

The exclusive organic reserve range is grown on the south-facing slopes of Piketberg Mountain where specially selected vines yield grapes of great distinction. Thanks to meticulous cellar practices every wine in the range is an aristocrat in its own right. A feast of concentrated berry fruit flavours combines with undertones of cigar box, leather and rich vanilla. This wine needs time while all components harmonise into a softer more elegantly balanced wine.

Thanks to meticulous cellar practices every wine in the range is an aristocrat in its own right. A complex rich, ripe wine with a deep vibrant ruby colour. Lingering blueberry fruit is enhanced by nuances of spice. An elegant backdrop of well-structured, integrated oak adds intensity and length to the wine.

Thanks to meticulous cellar practices every wine in the range is an aristocrat in its own right. The wine rewards with generous blackberry flavour harmoniously supported by undertones of vanilla and spice that linger on the palate.

Port Pumphouse

As a non vintage blend maximum consistency was achieved in the character of this organic Cape Ruby. Colour is a very bright deep beetroot. Opulent nose with a mixture of baked fruitcake and fresh berries underlined with a rich nutty mature bouquet. This complex Swartland Cape Ruby shows a well-integrated wood backdrop.
Light sugar with harmonious acid balance. Fruity mouthfeel and light lingering freshness.
