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'.

Flower, peach, apricot, lime zest, herbaceous notes... the list goes on and on. Aged for 8 months in French oak producing a wine of fresh, balance between fruit, weight of palate and finish. Huge complexity and hugely exciting. 68% Chenin Blanc, 15% Viognier, 15% Blanc Fumé and 2% Chardonnay. Total production: 2,100 bottles, closed under crowncap. This is immaculately crafted wine.
