Winery of the Week: Elgin Ridge

Brian and Marion Smith exchanged their London IT company for an Elgin apple farm in 2007. Assisted by top viticulturist Kevin Watt and Luddite’s Niels Verburg, they replanted orchards to vines focusing on cool-climate varieties for their specialist - very meticulous - production. Marion tends the vineyards, Brian oversees the custom-built boutique cellar, certified organic and manned by newly appointed winemaker Kosie van der Merwe.

Delicate green peach & lemongrass aromas, good palate weight from long lees-ageing & natural ferment, all ensuring food compatibility for 2013. Greater presence than very good 2012 (). Wine tasted by Jörg Pfützner More »
