Craig Wessels whole philosophy around winemaking is Burgundian. Craig wants to understand his vineyard and the fruit coming from it before making a serious Pinot.
The aim is to make clean, well made wines without changing the vineyard DNA. The individual wines must tell their own story. The terroir is conducive to creating depth on its own, without much interference in the cellar.
Corlien says: “This is a light, savoury wine without any obvious upfront fruity notes and a nice tight grippy tannin. Rather easy to finish a bottle”

Craig and Anne Wessels started planting vines in 1999 and since have become well known as one of the premium producers in the valley. The valley is well renowned for its cooler climate and the Wessels believe it is fundamental that their vines reflect this distinctive, marginal environment in which they grow; passing their unique characteristics onto the grapes, and ultimately, the wine.
