The Running Duck range is made by Stellar Organics – the pioneer winery from Western South Africa. The wines are certified organic and have also been made according to 'Fair for Life' guidelines. This social & fair trade certification ensures that human rights are guaranteed at any stage of production, that workers enjoy good and fair working conditions and that smallholder farmers receive a fair price.
The brand is named after the Indian Runner ducks sent roaming into the vineyards to eat snails and other threats to the vines. This is natural pest control and allows the winery not to use pesticides and other harmful chemicals. No sulphur is added to this wine.
Stellar wines are produced from the finest grapes in the cool Koekenaap area. Grape maturity is monitored extremely closely to make sure they harvest at optimal ripeness. The strategy is to harvest at night to ensure the grapes come in as cool as possible. The grapes are then destemmed in a Vacuum Nitrogen press to minimise oxidation. The wine is fermented on the skins with regular pumpovers.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
A pure expression of Cabernet Sauvignon, with bright blackcurrant fruit characters and a touch of fresh raspberry. Medium-bodied and silky smooth.
