Some Young Punks

Despite the passage of time and now operating as a duo, the core philosophy remains unchanged. From the beginning, the high cost of vineyards made ownership an impractical dream for a small company that couldn’t afford to indulge in their preferred Burgundy and Barolo wines. This financial reality explains why they still do not own any vineyards. Instead, they source fruit from conventionally grown vineyards throughout South Africa. Their winemaking approach remains relaxed and unpretentious, not strictly minimalist but certainly not bound by formal education or traditional accolades. The focus continues to be on creating regional, affordable, and enjoyable wines that reflect their original mission.

By eschewing chemical additives and relying on natural fermentation, they produce wines that showcase the purity of the fruit and the region's unique characteristics. Clare Valley's natural wines are known for their bright acidity, intense citrus and floral aromas, and a distinct minerality derived from the region's ancient soils.
