Marelise Niemann is a perfect example of the new breed of South African winemaker, breaking free from the shackles of big-brand winemaking that dominated the landscape for so long. Without constraints they are allowed to pursue excellence in small quantities, often with unusual grapes that they feel are best suited to the climate and terroir surrounding them.

Marelise’s travels have inspired her to do things differently. In order to explore the individuality of South Africa’s soils and vineyards she has embraced gentle ways of working to allowing the grapes their clear expression. All oak used is old, a vessel rather than used to impart flavour. The wines are cool, fresh, crisp and vibrant with energy and minerality. They work beautifully with food as a result of their structure, line of acidity and texture.

Marelise started her working life at well-known South African producer Beaumont Wines in 2007 but soon realised she wanted to have more creative freedom. She travelled the world to further her craft, it was a vintage in Priorat in 2010 alongside Eben Sadie, she realised the potential of Old-Vine Grenache, now her main love.
