LIMITED RELEASE WINES
This range of limited release wines tells our story as it unfolds. Each Chapter is unique.
Throughout my journey through the Cape Winelands I seek out interesting parcels of vineyards which speak to unique sites with the potential to produce top quality wines. This is a range where I can express these sites and produce small batches of exceptional wines from exceptional vineyard sites. These are single parcels which are wine styles and varieties which I love to drink, lovingly handcrafted in my pursuit of outstanding South African wines.
