About the Winery

 
In 2006, Emma and Jeremy Borg decided to create a wine company with one aim – to raise money to build a more hopeful future for the remarkable and highly endangered painted wolf. There are fewer than 6,000 painted wolves, or African wild dogs, left in the world today. Painted Wolf Wines is dedicated to the production of authentic, distinct and delicious wines and to the conservation of African wild dogs and their natural habitat, working with a number of partners to channel up to 5% of turnover into conservation projects

About the wine

With abundant fresh, citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, this a beautifully balanced wine which just leaps out of the glass. A hint of oak lends a degree of complexity and texture and layers of fruit and straw linger on the palate. Exceptional value.

Grapes were harvested from Leeuwenkuil in the Swartland and Welgegund in Wellington.
