On the nose the wine evokes juicy plum notes, rose petals and a hint of smoky spice. These characteristics carry through to the palate, with firm but smooth tannins, toasty oak flavours and a juicy finish.

Why we love it: Marras is the small but mighty label by talented young winemaker Martin Lamprecht, who brings fresh ideas to his current home in the Swartland.

The small and mighty label Marras, is led by talented young winemaker, Martin Lamprecht. As a one-time student at Cederberg under David Nieuwoudt`s wing, and having previously also worked in the Rhône, Martin brings fresh ideas to his current home in the Swartland, a melting pot for hot new talent and South Africa`s leading region for liberal winemaking and experimentation.

In his own modest words, “All I really do is take the grapes by their hands and guide them to where they want to be.” Using grapes from the vast plain and the elevated terroir of Piekenierskloof, he makes some bright new examples of Chenin, Grenache, and a Shiraz Cinsault blend.

Swartland, a large wine-producing area, is located 65 kilometers north of Cape Town in the Western Cape of South Africa. The climate is warm and dry, the terroirs are diverse (it has among the oldest viticultural soils in the world), and the landscape is breathtaking.

The area is home to some of the best wines in the country as well as some of the most progressive producers.Typical wines produced here specialise in making rich, fruit-driven wines from the Shiraz, Chenin Blanc and Pinotage grape varieties.

Swartland, meaning ‘Black Land’ is anything but dark, with golden wheatfields, mountains and a diverse landscape. The name comes from the now endangered indigenous renosterbos living in Swartland. At the foot of these Paardeberg mountains, you’ll find an unpretentious wine community.

The region is home to the most outstanding South African producers, including Mullineux.
