In the Cellar
Each of our wines is linked to a specific flower- the characteristics of the wine are symbolized by that particular flower on the label.
Watsonia alba is a very striking plant, with attractive foliage and gorgeous spikes of cup-shaped white flowers. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is a very pure and powerful wine much like the Watsonia alba.
