For Robert and Anette Rosenbach a long-held dream came true when they found this working farm in the scenic valley of McGregor, surrounded by vineyards, fynbos, a mystic range of mountains and next to the Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve. A wild fig tree gave the farm its name. Having relocated from Germany in 2009 they have turned the farm into a flourishing beauty where ecology and economy come together to make the best of nature and its products. They create an exclusive range of hand-picked and hand-crafted wines as well as distilling unique South African spirits in their 200 litre copper still which they brought with them from Germany.
Tanagra currently has 12.5 ha of vines in cultivation, mainly noble red wine cultivars. Tanagra is a boutique wine cellar producing only small amounts of high quality and unique red wines under the ‘Tanagra’ label.

Tanagra Carah 2017
Half Cabernet Sauvignon and half Shiraz, which are usually a speciality of Australia and found less often in the Cape. The name ‘Carah’ reflects the blend of cultivars (Ca[bernet] [Sy]rah) by using the French name of the cultivar, Syrah. This wine is wild- yeast and whole berry fermented, then oak-matured. Peppery and spicy with notes of plum, blackcurrant and cassis. Rich and elegant berry and fruit aromas. Soft and ripe tannins. A juicy and smooth finish. We just love this type of ‘New World’ blend – the Cabernet Sauvignon brings in structure and depth and combines it with the ripe spice and earthiness of the Shiraz. This wine is perfect to enjoy now or within (at least) the next 5 – 6 years.Grapes: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Shiraz Alcohol: 14.5%
