Schalkenbosch wines are crafted from carefully elected, and picked and sorted grapes which are vinified in the cellar behind the main house. They are then barrel matured in the best French and American oak until they develop the intense flavour and colour which is synonymous with wines produced on our estate. The Schalkenbosch label is reserved for classic wines of exceptional quality. These wines, taken from specially selected blocks are investment wines and should be stored under controlled conditions.
