A juicy, fresh wine with lovely pure fruit notes of raspberry, cherry and pomegranate and hints of herbs. Ideal served slightly chilled. The perfect wine gift.
After travelling extensively in Portugal and Austria learning his craft Craig Hawkins returned to South Africa and became the winemaker at top Swartland estate Lammershoek. Craig now makes his own wines from various small, organic vineyard sites in Swartland and makes his wine naturally, with as little intervention as possible. Planted in 2001, bush vine (un-trellised), farmed organically. This is a block that is fairly vigorous for the dry soils of the Swartland, and produces a good amount of high quality grape with very juicy large berries. Leaf thinning is kept to a minimum to shade the block as it can suffer from sunburn.
