Welcome on our journey.
IDUN, the goddess of
eternal life and fertility
will show the way…

I was born on the island of Mauritius into a French-Danish family of dreamers. From early on, I learned how to appreciate the poetry of wine.

I left home to pursue my studies in South Africa, and ended up staying for love. My blissful union with Joanne has produced four magnificent children.

After spending many years travelling extensively for my work in the garb industry, a late midlife crisis at 50 pushed me towards setting out on my dream journey: winemaking.

I had thought that I knew the Cape region quite well when I stumbled upon the beautiful Elgin Valley and its magical people.

That’s where we found IDUN.

As the goddess of eternal life and fertility, IDUN was chosen to fulfil our dreams. IDUN is the walk of life. She is the landmark in my journey, as she has allowed me to express myself through every bottle that is created and tell you a simple, universal story. She is my personal renaissance and will guide you on your quest for yours.

I hope it sets the tone for an unforgettable wine drinking experience. I look forward to meeting you on our journey. Remember, drinking one glass a day is better than not drinking at all. So here’s to discovering your own path and to the wonderful people who are here with me on mine: Joanne, Jamaique, Yasmin, Leo, Jenna, Doug, Paul, Nicky, Mark, Marius, Michael, Stuart, Merinda, Lizanne, Kobie, Elnette, Alexis, Barry, Isabelle, Jeff, Cheryll, Shaun, Annelise, Dinah, Jan, Frans, Stephne, Mieke, Tony, Garth, Jacque, Rene, Marzaan, Renaud and Tyrone.

I could not have made it this far without your love, support and skills.

CHARDONNAY

IDUN IS THE GODDESS OF ETERNAL LIFE. SHE IS ASSISTING US ON OUR QUEST TO RENAISSANCE.

Our Chardonnay is the binder of relationships and the opener on new horizons. Its delicate creaminess will gather the free spirits that are looking for magic moments, a friendly get-together or simply a magnificent sunset. Without love, where would you be now.

A clear, bright golden straw colour.

Enticing and exquisitely balanced. The initial aromas of apple and pear are covered by secondary layers of caramel, vanilla and roasted almonds.

Well-rounded with a light, fresh citrus mouthfeel and a polished finish that showcase the high-altitude origins.

Can be savoured now, but the freshness matures beautifully (enjoy within the next five to six years from harvest).

SAUVIGNON BLANC

IDUN IS THE GODDESS OF ETERNAL LIFE. SHE IS ASSISTING US ON OUR QUEST TO RENAISSANCE.

This radiant and snappy Sauvignon Blanc was created to enhance the zest in our lives. It is the expression of positive energy that nourishes our souls.

A light straw colour with a tinge of white chalk.

Seductive with powerful tropical aromas of granadilla and pawpaw. There’s a hint of oyster shell, which displays the maritime origin.

A perfect balance between the freshness and richness of fruit. The texture is delightful and there’s a touch of flintiness. The oyster shell is carried from the bouquet all the way to the finish.

Enjoy right now and keep on drinking until the next four years from harvest.

SYRAH

IDUN IS THE GODDESS OF ETERNAL LIFE. SHE IS ASSISTING US ON OUR QUEST TO RENAISSANCE.

Our Syrah has the soothing and comforting impact of wisdom and will ease your spirit into a reassuring state. Its powerful but smooth body is the ideal companion whilst listening to great music in front of a murmuring fire.

A luminous dark, ripe plum skin colour

Enticing black and red cherry fruit dusted with freshly ground white pepper. Primarily fruit-driven with layers of leather, cherry and pepper that showcase the cool climate origin.

The cherry fruit intensity continues onto the palate, which is subtle, juicy, relaxed and well-balanced with polished tannins.

Can be savoured now or within the next five to seven years from harvest.

MERLOT

IDUN IS THE GODDESS OF ETERNAL LIFE. SHE IS ASSISTING US ON OUR QUEST TO RENAISSANCE.

Our Merlot was caressed by the wings of the hovering Blue Cranes. It portrays a sentiment of reverie and satisfaction experienced after an achievement.

A deep, black cherry hue with a youthful purple edge

An entry of dark berries driven by primary fruit reveals a mulberry and raspberry reduction with a hint of caramel.

The palate is captivated by the mouth-filling sensation of an intense cool-climate Merlot. The structure is firm and has delightful balance and poise.

Can be enjoyed right now, or allow to mature for another six to nine years from harvest.
