The ground-breaking Vilafonté project saw the very best wine producers in California, Zelma Long and Phil Freese, partner with Mike Ratcliffe, the ex-owner of Warwick. Apart from the new international perspective, attention to detail was of the highest priority to push the boundaries of red wine quality in South Africa. Winemaking Partner Zelma Long noticed that their vineyard was producing two distinctive styles. Both styles were of the highest quality, not one of them better than the other, but distinctive nonetheless. One portion of the vineyard produced a soft, rounded, fleshy and fruit-driven style. The other side produced a bolder, more powerful and structured style. It was this realisation that led to the birth of Series C and Series M.
