    “Many years ago, one of my importers in London asked that I make him a sweet wine that he could pair with the cheese board at his restaurant.
    For years I thought he was joking, until his regular insistence demanded action on my part. So I found a block of Mourvèdre in the Swartland, and let the sun go to work. The result is our naturally sweet Mourvèdre. It is rich and full-bodied, but with a strong line of acidity to keep the wine balanced and ensure that it can be enjoyed at any time.

    Description

    VINEYARD INFORMATION The 2014 harvest had the earliest start in decades. A warm, dry and windy summer kept vineyard growth under control and accelerated ripening by approximately two weeks. The dry weather resulted in the healthiest seasons in years. This led to good grape analyses which formed the foundation for high quality wine.

    Producer Profile

    Ian Naudé’s wines are unlike anything else.

    His range of wines are made up of esoteric pockets of old and new vines that tell a story about South African heritage. He did so fearlessly, believing that South African wine, if made honestly, and without compromise can come to rival the finest wines in the world. And slowly the international wine cognoscenti have started believing it too, as demonstrated by their rave reviews year-on-year.
