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.
Engaging nose of white peach, apple and a hint of dried herbs. Ripe fruits and mineral flavours go with bright acidity on the palate and lead to a good length finish.
