He has worked his magic to create some wonderfully layered depth and complexity by using 20% reserve wine from the previous harvest and a combination of oak and clay amphora vessels. The bouquet shows intense floral aromatics of jasmine and orange blossom with distinct pear drop undertones. The wine is textured and complex with a bright, crisp vibrant acidity that finishes in a long salivating finish.

The Van Wyk Family Vineyards. Justin, of Constantia Glen Winery fame, has spent the last six years working with select vineyards planted across the greater Western Cape. As for the inspiration behind his labels? 'The ram depicted on the label is a Merino ram, and the other elements such as the hills and windmill are typical Karoo elements. The three daffodils bring an element of colour to the logo and they signify the colour in my life, my wife and two daughters.' Van Wyk Family Vineyards is a highly anticipated endeavour - a specific interest in sourcing grapes from old vines, and when it comes to varieties such as Chenin Blanc and Cinsault; there are an abundance of old 'undiscovered' vineyards where the true potential of the grapes have not yet been realised. Besides being very selective about chosen vineyards and varieties, he aims to make honest and elegant wines that are expressive of nature, circumstance and his passion for the Cape’s heritage grape varieties.
