By trade he is an architect but in 1983 he decided to plant a small vineyard for fun. In 1991 David turned his part-time hobby into a full-time career. Twenty years on, he is one of South Africa’s most decorated winemakers.

Production note

The grapes were picked at optimum ripeness and laid out on drying racks in 70% shade for about 3 weeks. This concentrates the sugars, acids and flavours in the grape before they are taken to the winery in the cool mornings. Fermented with natural yeasts and matured for 23 months using 50% new 225L French oak barrels. Racked while in barrel to remove heavy sediment and lightly bentonite fined.
