This premium series "Collector's Reserve" was inspired by the vibrant energy and creative demeanor of Cape Town. Only the best grapes were processed, for whose wines unique label designs were created that artistically interpret the city's most prominent landmarks.

THE CAPE GARDEN: The Company's Garden in Cape Town is now a green oasis in the heart of the city. The name "Garden" dates back to the time when the area was used as an actual vegetable garden from which sailors could source their fresh fruit and vegetables for their voyages. However, it wasn't long before the first Chenin Blanc vines were planted... and so this wine is a true homage to the origins of the Cape of Good Hope.
