Hemel-en-Aarde

Hemel-en-Aarde, or “Heaven and Earth” as it means in English, is a cool climate South African wine region within the wider Walker Bay and in close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. A distinctly maritime profile and frequent cooling breezes has encouraged plantings of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, where it generally excels. The region is further split in to three sub-appellations: Valley, Upper Valley and Ridge, each with its own distinct character, according to soil type, topography and climate. They were created as recently as 2009 and time will tell as to how these variations manifest themselves in the final wines. The most famous inhabitants of the Hemel-en-Aarde are Hamilton Russell, Newton Johnson and Bouchard Finlayson, as well as a number of increasingly important producers such as Restless River, Storm Wines and Tesserlaarsdall.
