Backsberg Wine Estate

backsberg

Backsberg’s wine making style is very much based on the kiss principle. i.e. “keep it simple stupid”.

In other words, if we have not got it right in the vineyards we are not going to get it right in the cellar.

Winemaking is done with as little intervention as possible, but with Alicia holding the reigns of all the components of the cellar together with the sole aim of directing winemaking to produce wines with a high level of drinkability.

Wines which are seamless, i.e. wines where all the components of flavour are in harmony: fruit sweetness, tannin, acid and where the wines have been wood matured, barrel characteristics.

She has trained her staff well, and all quietly go about the business of winemaking in a diligent planned and organised manner.

Good wines, great veriety of tastings available. Only reason for not a full star is the tasting room which is outdated and with almost no space for couples/two people.
