The holiday season is upon us, and what better way to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year than with our exclusive 12-Day Wine Advent Calendar? Behind each window of the calendar lies a carefully chosen Strandveld delight, meticulously curated to encapsulate the true spirit of the season. This isn’t just a collection of wines – it’s a touch of magic to your holiday celebrations. The joy of uncorking a new bottle each day becomes a cherished ritual, transforming your countdown to the festive season into a journey of wine discovery.

Anticipation in Every Sip

The Strandveld Wine Advent Calendar is a wine-lover’s dream, where the joy and anticipation of unboxing the best of Strandveld awaits. Our Wine Advent Calendar unveils some of our most cherished wines, each bottle a testament to our passion and dedication to quality and craftsmanship. From the crisp and refreshing First Sighting Sauvignon Blanc to the bold and robust Strandveld Syrah, every day brings a new flavour profile to savour, and a new reason to celebrate.

Let’s take a sneak peek at the treasures hidden within the Wine Advent Calendar: 

1. First Sighting Rosé:

Tart strawberry and red berries shine in this 63% Shiraz and 37% Grenache blend. Delicate floral notes lead to a crisp palate with hints of cherries and pomegranate, culminating in a cool, dry finish. A delightful, summery start to your wine advent journey, and perfect for those festive brunches. 

2. First Sighting Sauvignon Blanc:

Lively tropical and citrus fruits, a touch of buchu herbs and a clean, inviting minerality finish. Crisp and refreshing, this Sauvignon Blanc is ideal for sipping on those sun-kissed holiday afternoons.

3. First Sighting Syrah:

Bold and robust, this wine mirrors the hearty spirit of the season. Signature white pepper, blackberry and mocha notes give way to a full silky palate and long spicy finish, balanced by savoury tannins.

4. Strandveld Sauvignon Blanc Poffaderbos:

Named after local encounters with Puff Adder snakes, this Sauvignon Blanc captures the essence of cool climates and slow ripening conditions. Expressive notes of passion fruit, grapefruit, and blackcurrant greet the nose, while the palate enjoys a creamy fullness with citrus, fynbos, and oyster shell minerality. Balanced by natural acidity, it culminates in a long, satisfying finish.

5. Strandveld Syrah:

Another day, another Syrah – because there’s no such thing as too much Syrah during the holidays. This full-bodied, Rhône-style Syrah boasts white pepper, fynbos and spice aromas. Its rich palate features firm tannins, seamlessly integrated oak and layers of intense blackberry fruit flavours with savoury notes.

6. Strandveld Adamastor:

Relentless winds and low yields contribute to this superb Bordeaux-style Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend. You can expect typical Elim minerality and fynbos characters with citrus and white stone fruit. The palate is full and creamy, featuring toasted oak flavours and a dry minerality on the aftertaste. Our Adamastor is a blend that dances on the palate, perfect for festive gatherings with friends and family.

7. Strandveld Navigator:

Navigate through the holiday season with this rich and complex red wine. This aromatic Rhône blend seamlessly melds Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Viognier. Cool-climate spice, white pepper and floral notes from Viognier create a fragrant profile. The palate carries the spiciness, complemented by blackberry flavours. The Grenache adds red berry fruit, fine tannins and a lingering finish. 

8. Strandveld Grenache:

This Grenache boasts bold fruit and structure in a beautiful deep red hue. It’s delightfully aromatic, featuring vibrant red berry, black cherry and intriguing fynbos notes. The opulent, juicy palate offers masses of berry fruit, subtle integrated oak and mouth-watering cool-climate tannins. Indulge in the warmth of this Grenache, a delightful companion for your festive evenings.

 And as if that’s not enough excitement, our Wine Advent Calendar features four mystery bottles of our carefully curated vintages, adding an extra layer of suspense and surprise to your wine-filled festive countdown.
