"Thin black silk dresses on a summer evening with and a cello bowing deep rich sounds. The jacarandas waving in the richness of cranberry, black currant juices lush tasty tannic lips. So good even Dracula would give up his blood for a taste.

The Merlot is grown at the Magpie Springs farm in the Hope Valley. It has sand soil and is at the top of a hill near the ocean with strong ocean breezes sometimes. The vines are 25 years old and VSP trained and spur pruned. 100% destemmed, saignéed and fermented in open topped wooden barrel. After 10 days on skins with occasional plunging it’s pressed to 500L barrels. The wine is make of the free run component only." – Anton van Klopper

All of Anton's wines are made from organically farmed grapes, picked early for lower alcohol and vinified with zero additives. No chemicals are ever used in the winery – not even to clean (only water is used and occasionally alcohol which he distills himself). Wine for the purest of purists among you.
