Bartinney is situated on a mountain overlooking the beautiful Banghoek Valley in Stellenbosch. The 3 main cultivars planted here are Sauvignon blanc (3.23ha ), Chardonnay (2.96ha) and Cabernet Sauvignon (12.5ha). Cabernet Sauvignon is planted in deep red soils on the slightly lower foothills and the 2009 vintage is up for release early 2011. Cabernet Sauvignon is the largest planting on the farm, at about 70% of vineyard area, and with this 2009 being their first release. The fruit has been picked at about 6 to 8 tons/hectare and with only 12 000 bottles produced, they are sure to fly off the shelf.

French oak maturation of which 40% is in new oak.

For the adventurous, try pairing with Asian spiced lamb chops on a bed of greens and honey-soy noodles.
