The Vibe: White, medium, dry, Chenin, fruity, citrus, lemon peel, sweet lime, green, marzipan.

Friends Would Say: Some top quality Chenin wines coming from South Africa. A rare beauty, one of a kind, not many of these types on the market! This wine has fresh minerality, firm and concentrated texture with some dreamy heady floral aromatics. On the palette it delivers juicy dried fruits, giant yellow sultanas and a saline, salty finish which makes it moorish. It has a wonderful greenness, like young grass which is balanced out by the marzipan texture. We love this wine and the winemaker is a legend! 

The First Date: This is just a full stop treat! A treat for the beach, for the park, for Christmas morning, for birthday celebrations, any time, anywhere, your going to love this wine! 

The Banter: Andrew Wightman moved to Môrelig (“morning light”) on the northerly, Swartland extent of the Paardeberg some seven years ago. The farm had always produced grapes for some of the area’s most celebrated winemakers but encouraged by his neighbours, Andrew and latterly his son Brandon began making wine of their own as members of the Swartland Independent movement. His wines are made with passion and love which comes through.
