'Natural ferment in open bins, 22-day (nerve-racking) maceration, older barrels only. Vivacious 2020 sees debut of fruit from block named ‘Dog’. Orange marmalade, lemon pepper & almond nuances, rich pear & stonefruit persistence. So much presence, texture & vinosity at bone-dry 1 g/L sugar & just 11.5% alcohol, even lower than 2019 (4.5 stars, 94 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'22 days of skin contact. Lots of flinty reduction before peach and pineapple on the nose. The palate has a sweet ‘n sour quality although technically bone-dry – good fruit density to go with bracing acidity before a saline finish (the alcohol is a mere 11.5% and residual sugar is 1g/l). An arresting drop.' – Christian Eedes,, 91/100

'Rich, golden straw hue appearance. Spicy, greengage, savoury and nutty nose. After a while nose opens up to give hints of white fruit; pears and peaches. Grippy textured entry on the palate. Amazing palate weight and mouth feel for the low alcohol. Finishes with white fruit, spice and a salty minerality.' – Niels Verburg, Winemaker

Producer information In 1999 Niels and Penny Verburg established their own wine farm on the slopes of the Houw Hoek Mountains in Bot River. They named their farm Luddite, meaning ‘someone who is resistant to new technology or new ways of working’. This definition captures their winemaking philosophy perfectly as Niels is constantly striving to create perfect wines despite the challenging conditions thrown his way. Niels and his team at Luddite are incredibly passionate about their Shiraz and are never willing to compromise on quality. This dedication translates into consciously-farmed grapes and small-batch wines that have amazing character.
