Arendsig - Single Vineyard Wines made with minimal interference
"All of my Single Vineyard blocks are terroir driven"
- Lourens
"It is important to keep every different clone and grapes from different slopes separate during harvest, as well as in the cellar. It provides more components for the winemaker to experiment with and the opportunity to make a wine with complex flavours."

"My philosophy is to create great single vineyard wines from unique soil, climate and location. It's the soil with all the microbes, cycle of elements and the help of living organisms that create the heartbeat for my vines. The location towards the sun wind and holistic climatical conditions reflects the uniqueness of each vineyard."
"All my Single Vineyard Wines are made with minimal interference throughout the vinification. During fermentation natural yeast are used with no enzymes.  Maturation takes place in neutral vessels to bring through the unique vineyard characteristics, that's specific to the site.
The handcrafted approach by human nature helps to add to the final balance of this unique product".
