Multiple award-winning 6th generation producer owned by the Nel family, who established the Calitzdorp district in the Klein Karoo and gradually built it to world-wide fame for the quality of its Port-styled wines produced outside of the Duoro valley.

Sold on auction in 2013, the ’09 is a barrel selection of the Platter 5* Vintage Reserve described as “another brilliant and age-worthy vintage expression”, fermented and fortified in small lagares, barrel matured in large seasoned oak barrels for 12 months.
