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."
