“My aspiration is to create wines which authentically express South Africa’s unique vineyard sites and exceptional diversity. I strive to capture a sense of place, while respectfully reflection the intrinsic character of the fruit. Balance, length and intensity are paramount and every bottle is a labour of love.” – Erika Obermeyer
