For many years I worked with Bordeaux style varietals, until Rosa Kruger found his

amazing vineyard of Grenache from Agter Paardeberg. After only one vintage (2014)

with this block, I lost it until 2019. I was excited to put my hands on this Grenache

again and just like the 2014-vintage, my main intention was to move away from those

typical heavy/fruit/barnyard style Grenache.


Many visits to the vineyard and picking at the ripeness that would make a lighter

Grenache-style of wine, and fermenting it with minimal interference, this wine took a

life of its own.
