Aromas of ripe purple figs, rosemary oil, and sandal wood. The wine is refined on the palate with soft, chalky tannins, which give way to a finish of red plums, juniper and cranberries. The wine is bright and keenly balanced, very pure in its fruit with a dusting of fine tanin to complete the picture.

John has drawn on the great history of wine growing here in the Cape, putting together old vineyard parcels with new grape cultivars, and making wines with old-school simplicity and a modern ‘edge’. His approach to wine making is simple, honest and gentle, and he is looking to make wines that tell a story, not wines that shout and bang a drum. The “Wanderer’s Heart” Cape Red Blend was added to the range from the 2016 vintage.
