Stellekaya’s precociously talented Ntsiki Biyela was named South Africa’s Woman Winemaker of the Year in 2009.
What You Need To Know
Ntsiki Biyela joined Stellekaya in 2004, a year after receiving her undergraduate degree in viticulture and enology from the University of Stellenbosch. It was an auspicious start: With an assist from then-consultant Peet Le Roux, Biyela’s 2004 Cape Cross red blend went on to win gold at the Michelangelo Awards, which is like the South African Oscars for wine. It was the first such award for a black South African winemaker (Biyela is Zulu) and made her a rising star. Founded by technology entrepreneur Dave Lello, Stellekaya is a small, estate-focused winery in Stellenbosch. Biyela’s 2009 Cabernet offers a refined combination of deep fruit and savory, minerally complexity.
