Donovan Rall






The climate and soil of Clouds support the harvesting of grapes for wine-making on this working wine farm. Leading viticultural manager, Wynand Pienaar, takes care of Clouds' grapes and plants pinot noir, cabernet, merlot, petite verdot and chardonnay grapes as well as the estate's renowned sauvignon blanc.


Awarding-winning wine maker, Donovan Rall has worked across Europe, Moselle and New Zealand, and is the resident winemaker at Clouds, working closely with owner Paul. Rall's vision is to infuse all of Clouds' wines with flavours of Clouds' own harvest.


Clouds is famous for its "Pink" Sauvignon Blanc. Its fruity aromas include kwiwifruit and gooseberry flavours. The light yellow Sauvignon Blanc, with hints of lime, is also a favourite.


The Clouds Chardonnay has citrus and eucalyptus tones, while their Pinot Noir has hints of sour cherries and earthy undertones. The estate's Sauvignon Blanc Methode Cap Classique features apple and citrus flavours that bubble to the surface.





The climate and soil of Helshoogte support the harvesting of grapes for wine-making on this working wine farm.  For the past dozen years Clouds has grown and harvested chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet, merlot & petit verdot.  Shiraz, carignan and grenache noir grapes was added to this petite estate in 2018. 


Clouds Estate makes a range of wines to please the palate.  The new Blanc de noir is perfect for summertime drinking, the Bordeaux style Field blend is equally enjoyable now but will mature beautifully over the next 5-10 years.   


Winemaker Donovan Rall is hands-off in the cellar and prefers fermenting and aging that leave little imprint on what the fruit offers. He loves using bigger barrels, clay, and concrete that specific style we are after.
