A qualified industrial engineer, “crazy Belgian” Koen learned to make wine with François Naudé at L’Avenir before embarking with his wife Lore on the long search for their own farm. Historically an apple growing region Elgin is now regarded as a premium vine growing area.

300m above sea level, at Spioenkop cooling sea breezes funnel down the valley which prolongs the growing period. Slopes are steep so no tractor can operate and there are 7 different soil structures on the farm. Each cultivar is planted on a different soil all of which are quite stony and make the vines work hard. Their first wines were bottled in 2010.

Subtle Pinot fruit flavours of cranberry, cherries, red forrest berries and jellied fruit. A lovely backbone structure with some black pepper, red rabarber and pomegranate complexity. The best vintage so far of this wine and a pure reflection of Elgin.
