Black Oystercatcher is a range of sought after boutique wines from the coastal Agulhas district and Elim wine ward in South Africa. This ward, the newest of the maritime vineyards, is one of the most closely watched wine producing regions in the world. Situated on the southern coastal lowlands, around the historical village of Elim on the southernmost tip of Africa, the strong, cool summer winds ensure a very cool ripening season, perfect for minerally Sauvignon Blanc wines with a tropical fruit flavour and red varietals that produce elegant, fruity red wines. Enjoy great wines in a relaxed and comfortable setting.

Did You Know...? Black Oystercatcher wine is aptly named after the endangered ocean birds that thrive along the coastline.
