Uitkyk Carlonet Earns Decanter Gold 
We are very proud of the gold medal recently won for our 2009 vintage of Carlonet at the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards in London. Uitkyk Carlonet is our flagship wine and has a history spanning more than half a century.
This wine derives its name from George von Carlowitz. Following the advice of renowned viticulturist, Prof Izak Perold, his father, a German nobleman, planted Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Cinsaut on our farm in 1949.

Uitkyk Carlonet is rich and velvety and tastes of ripe berries with hints of chocolate and spice. Enjoy this wine with robust red meat dishes, rich casseroles and mildly spicy pizzas. You can purchase Uitkyk Carlonet for R100 directly from our farm or via our website. For your convenience, this wine can be purchased for a similar price at chosen  outlets countrywide.

Curry?not in a hurry

Winter is the best time to share one of my favourite heart-warming recipes with you, which pairs perfectly with our delicious Flat Roof Manor Shiraz Mourvèdre Viognier. This aromatic red blend, filled with juicy berry flavours and spice, is a treat with my chicken curry pot which is a family favourite. This dish is easy to prepare and generously serves four to six people.
