            [ServingSuggestion] => A slightly nutty sauce with some of the white meats, BUT Cape “smoor snoek” works
well. Try mushroom risotto or “Butter chicken” – both a winning situation. Burnt sage
butter pasta ravioli.
Cheese: "Gruyere!"
            [WineMakingNotes] => Grapes are hand harvested early morning at 23.5 balling. Portion of the grapes are
whole bunch pressed and the other portion goes through the destemmer and crushed
for skin contact. One day of settling and then barrelled in 400L French oak barrels.
Natural fermentation takes place over the next 40 – 60 days with strict temperature
control during fermentation. Once fermentation is completed the wine is matured for
up to 10 months with monthly battônage of the lees. No malolactic fermentation takes
place. 33% 1st fill, 33% 2nd fill and 33% 3rd fill barrels of tight grain with medium
toast.

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.
