            [ServingSuggestion] => This wine will be well suited to creamy dishes. It does especially well with creamy
tomato soup and light curry sauces or citrus dominated salads and dishes. Greek salad
works well.
Cheese: Goats cheese (chevin) or well matured asiago both work. Also try feta and
mozzarella.

            [WineMakingNotes] => Grapes are hand harvested early morning at 20-23.5 balling. Winemaking processing
is done in reductive conditions with the use of dry ice and carbon dioxide gas. Grapes
crushed at 8°C with approximately 5 - 8 hours skin contact before a light pressing.
Two days of juice settling followed by racking and addition of selected yeast.
Fermentation is at 11°C for approximately 24 days. Finally, the wine is further
maturated on fine lees for additional 4 months with a monthly battônage of tank
before the final blending and bottling.

I then returned to home ground and joined the winemaking team at Klein Constantia. In 2004 I was offered the opportunity of starting Anwilka wines in conjunction with Klein Constantia role-players and Bordeaux winemakers. The four invaluable years at Anwilka and my international experience gave me the confidence to start my own brand, and in 2008 I went solo. Since the very first vintage my focus has always been on two very diverse wine regions, namely Elim and the Swartland.

I currently live in Kommetjie, a quaint village on the Southern Peninsula, and make my wines just down the road in Noordhoek. Apart from everything wine-related. making, judging on various panels or just straightforward drinking, I also make time to surf whenever I get the opportunity.  I feel that the ocean recharges me, and teaches one patience and respect for nature.

Winemaking >

Grapes are hand harvested early morning at 20-23.5 balling. Winemaking processing is done in reductive conditions with the use of dry ice and carbon dioxide gas. Grapes crushed at 8°C with approximately 5 - 8 hours skin contact before a light pressing. Two days of juice settling followed by racking and addition of selected yeast. Fermentation is at 11°C for approximately 24 days. Finally, the wine is further maturated on fine lees for additional 4 months with a monthly battônage of tank before the final blending and bottling.
