The perfect partnership to make superb wine is that of Martin Krajewski and Matthew Krone. Martin is a well known Bordeaux Wine man, know for his excellent wines. Matthew Krone is the 12th generation of Krones who have been making wine in the Tulbagh Wine Appellation. His father and grandfather before him great pioneers in that special place.

Cabernet Sauvignon Grapes in the hands of the harvester

Cabernet Sauvignon is a noble grape with Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc as its parents. A natural crossing in the vineyards of Bordeaux not long after the Dutch drained the swamps and Bordeaux became a magical name in wine.

Vicki Thomas’s workings for the label

The label is a water colour by Vicki Thomas, a leading South African botanical artist. The illustration is of an Aristea flower she found in her garden in Betty’s Bay
