David & Nadia is a family owned Swartland driven project and we focus on a spectrum of organic, old and dry land bush vine vineyards from different areas with different soil types throughout the Swartland, farmed by like-minded people. We are members of the Swartland Independent Producers. In the vineyard we aim for biological farming and in the cellar we work as natural as possible. It is all about the soil and vineyards after all. We believe in a pure, fresh and natural style where site and soil are at work with minimal influence from a winemaking point of view.
Carefully selected grapes from five vineyards go into the Grenache noir: a key vineyard situated in the Paardeberg planted in the early 2000s, a Paardeberg vineyard that was recently planted on the north-eastern side of the Langkloof valley overlooking the Aprilskloof, a vineyard planted in 2016 in the schist soils of the Kasteelberg, and finally a vineyard in the north of Malmesbury that David and Nadia have been working with since 2012. A significant portion of the wine (60%) was fermented and matured in concrete (60% whole-bunch). The juice was kept on the skins for four weeks prior to and during fermentation. A 60% whole bunches were used. The wine was pressed off and matured in a combination of old 500L neutral French oak barrels and a 2,700L concrete vessel for one year.
