J&B South Africa Series: Storm Wines 2020s
15 October 2021

Last but by no means least in our South Africa series comes Storm Wines. Based in the cool Hemel-en-Aarde, Hannes Storm and his team craft finely tuned, site-specific wines from each of the valley’s sub-regions. Vrede is a stony, shale and clay based vineyard in the lower part of the valley, abutting the vineyards of Hamilton Russell, Ignis is located in the upper valley and planted primarily on decomposed granite, while Ridge sits at the highest elevation with a cool easterly exposure in the aptly named Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. Here the soils are similar to Vrede in being low-vigour clay and shale.

A respected viticulturist, Hannes consulted on many of the top sites in the valley over the past fifteen years before venturing solo in order to produce a range of Burgundian-inspired wines in a more natural, hands-off way. As such, he is proud to work with only estate grown fruit, which he ferments naturally in small stainless steel batches, before aging in top quality French barriques, employing a well-judged 25-30% new oak across the range.
