Product reviews
Coming from granitic soil and the total absence of oak, gives you an honest, punchy and zippy wine that will go a treat with a richer seafood dish. We love the "nakedness" of the wine. It has a beautiful minerality to it, but also lime zest and magnolia flowers on the nose. The palate has the perfect weight while the natural acidity liberally distributes the flavors of lime sorbet, quince and green apple. Made under the watchful eyes of Chris Alheit.
With a pH of 3.14, this wine will last for a looong time!1600 bottles produced.
From decomposed granite quartz soils. Picked early morning at around 22 brix. Whole bunch pressed, settled overnight and moved to a concrete egg for fermentation (10 months).

Cousins Danie and Hugo are 5th generation growers with prime vineyards in the Swartland, Devon Valley and the very exciting Polkadraai ward in Stellenbosch. Great wine is made in the vineyards and they supply a roll-call of exceptional producers ? names like Alheit Vineyards, Crystallum, Raats Family Wines, Thorne & Daughters, Mulderbosch & LeRiche to name but a few.Winemaking is overseen by Lukas van Loggerenberg, no less..

Embodying the drive of the new generation Hugo and Danie decided not only to sell grapes and have other people make great wines from them but to make some wine too. So started Carinus Family Wines using their selection from their 100s hectares to focus on what works in each area.
