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.

Aromas of red and black fruit with lavender, spices and fresh herb notes. The palate shows great red fruit purity, spice tones and fresh herbs with bright acidity and supple tannins.
