Dirty Little Secret FOUR


We took a trip backwards in time to make a thoroughly modern wine.

A wine that will age beautifully for at least the next ten years. A tribute hopefully to the age & concentration of the vines, as well as to low, very low interruptive winemaking… a natural wine in every sense!

Finally bottled totally “naturally” with no cold stabilization or fining. Remarkably the wine is crystal clear, slightly golden in a good way, with a lime green rim.

How did I do that you ask?… Well it’s unfiltered, unrefined and just a Dirty Little Secret – naturally!

Made from grapes sourced from a very old dryland vineyard in the Piekenierskloof region planted in 1965.

The main objective was to let this interesting fruit source speak for itself and show its typicity and specific character, ancient bush vines with a great view!

The result? A tribute to the age and concentration of the vines, the low yield and the non-intrusive way of creating this wine.

This wine has been handled as gently as possible. It is unfiltered, unfined and may form harmless crystals – truly a sign of quality!

Only 7 x 400L barrels produced.

A tight, bright, mineral wine with texture and mouthfeel and a hint of phenolic structure, a soft acidity and a pear drop intensity.

Crafted to age and gain complexity in the bottle.

A special old vineyard planted in 1959 – hand harvested bush vine fruit – wild yeast ferment in old French barrels – unhurried and undisturbed wine making – multiple vintages blended as “reserve” wines held back are added for complexity.
