Jacobus van der Spuy inherited the farm in 1758 and now Sybrand van der Spuy still owns it today. They've roped in Riandri Visser, a young, female, South African winemaker who has been influenced by her travels through European vineyards - she even has two cats called Sancerre and Loire. She has won several prestigious awards for her Sauvignons already.
Rich, reasonably full bodied red — perfect as it gets colder. Blackcurrant, violets, green bell pepper, fennel, and sage. Lots of florality throughout nose and palate. Great wine.
