“I love Ian Naudé’s wines – they are such beautiful expressions of what is grown, where it is grown. Ian would say in the vineyard he helps the grapes be in a condition to express their origins and his winemaking is based around stopping this expression being lost by what he does. I think he is a bloody brilliant winemaker.
Werfdans 2017 is an old vine Cinsault, the vineyard was planted in 1968, that after six years in his care he feels ready to show to the world. The word ‘Werfdans’ refers to the dust devils that dance around his old, dry-farmed, Cinsault bush vines. A poetic name. This wine is about as lovely as poetry can be.
I cannot write more of a introduction without basically spilling the beans about why I love this wine, so I will let my description of the wine do that instead.”
