Other Info:
The Verburg and Meyer families set up Luddite Wines in 2000 on a slope of the Houw Hoek mountain outside the village of Bot River. The farm is 17 hectares of which 7 are under vine and 1 hectare is planted with olives. They farm as naturally as possible and the vines are not irrigated. Winemaker Niels Verburg is not one for technical trickery in the winery and the motto proudly emblazoning his website is 'technology is no substitute for passion'.

A blend of Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Total production is 14,000 bottles, 3,000 under crowncap. Hugely expressive on nose and palate: red and black fruit, pepper and spice, liquorice, black olive, scrub and some earthiness. Rich but balanced - lovely fruit expression, the mouthfeel smooth in a good way, no shortage of freshness and an admirably savoury finish.
