Tucked amongst the lower slopes of the Helderberg Moutain, stonewall cellar has a long history of great wine making. Many believe that it could in fact be the oldest cellar in the Cape Winelands region. It was constructed in 1828 and come 1873, the De Wall family began farming at Stonewall. When De Wall Koch took over the running of the farm in 1984, he sold 90% of the farmís grapes to one of South Africaís largest wine making companies; Distell. The remainder was kept for the production of his own wine.

With years of winemaking experience, many winemakers from smaller farms have asked for his assistance in wine fermentation. The Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 has been made from specifically selected barrels where it enjoys a lengthy oak maturation and boasts excellent aging potential. The classic blend of Ruber, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon 2003 has a good tannin structure and can also be enjoyed many years later.
