After travelling extensively in Portugal and Austria learning his craft Craig Hawkins returned to South Africa and became the winemaker at top Swartland estate Lammershoek. Craig now makes his own wines from various small, organic vineyard sites in Swartland and makes his wine naturally, with as little intervention as possible.
Cranberry and pomegranate plus a slight nutty quality, earth and spice on the nose. The palate is aromatic and light bodied with sour cherry, strawberry and bright acidity evolving to sweeter potpourri-like floral notes and a lingering savoury finish. Unpretentious and approachable.
