The winemakers philosophy is to create great single vineyard wines from unique soil, climate and location." "It's the soil with all the microbes, cycle of elements and the help of living organisms that creates the heartbeat for my vines. The location towards the sun, wind and holistic climate conditions reflects the uniqueness of each vineyard."

Maturation takes place in neutral vessels to bring through the unique vineyard characteristics which is specific to the site." Lourens Van Der Westhuizen – wine maker
