Grape variety: Viognier
Due to the DNA of the grapes, we decided to ferment whole bunches. It is well suited to the Swartland climate and has good character even at low alcohol levels. The aroma is full of Viognier fruit, but the stems control the character well. Fermented in whole bunch for 13 days. After that, it is aged for 10 months in a 500L French old wooden barrel.
Järgen is the wildest, funky and crazy man in Swartland. Contrary to its character, it creates a delicate and unique type of wine.

At that time, training in Matassa in the south of France inspired him to become passionate about natural wines, and since 2010 he has worked as an assistant at Ramshook with Craig Hawkins. His aim is to bring out the full character of the grapes and to bring out the characteristics of the Swartland terroir.
