Erasmus Family

In the desolate winter of 1693, Pieter "Den Deen" Erasmus took a brave journey from the Netherlands to settle in the Cape. On 28 February 1699, Governer Willem Adriaan van der Stel would grant Erasmus the farm De Groenenbergh in Wagenmakersvallei, part of the sub-district of Drakenstein - better known today as Paarl. He married Maria Elizabeth Joosten who then joined him and subsequently gave birth to their son, Rasmus - the first of nine children.

Until his death in 1731, Erasmus paved the way for what today thrives as green-stretching vineyards. As the progenitor of the Erasmus family of South Africa, his legacy continues to thrive in his descendants who are still crafting wine in this region to this very day.

This wine is a blend of Carignan, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Shiraz. It is a typical Mediterranean blend reflecting the elegance of the 2014 vintage with ripe, soft tannins. Only 3000 bottles were produced, making it quite the exclusive blend.
