- The Franschhoek wine estate, Rickety Bridge, has a winemaking history dating back to the 17th century. It was part of the original La Provence farm granted to the first French Huguenots who settled in Oliphantshoek and renamed the area, Franschhoek. Over the years La Provence was subdivided and in 1797 the land which is now known as Rickety Bridge wine estate was granted to the widow, Paulina De Villiers. Rickety Bridge wine estate is situated just 5 minutes from the centre of the quaint town of Franschhoek and lies on the slopes of the Franschhoek Mountains overlooking the majestic Wemmershoek Mountain range.Rickety Bridge wine estate is 50 Hectares in area of which only 15 Hectares are currently dedicated to vineyard, with a further 6 hectares under development. The remaining 35 Hectares are made up of buildings, dams and pine forest.
Vibrant and juicy, with layers of red fruit, raspberry, mulberry and hints of chocolate and spice, good structure with a lingering aftertaste red berries. Well integrated velvety, but big tannins supported by the subtle oaking.
