ABOUT THE WINE THIEF

Cheeky as he is lovely, Sommelier Ewan Mackenzie thieves his way around the Cape Winelands, working with some of the best winemakers in the region to champion varietals that are usually blended away. Small batch to the tune of sometimes just a single barrel, these babies are literally made to pair with all kinds of food.

OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE
Ewan picked purple for this label/wax combo because ‘the grape screams purple’….and who are we to argue? Also, it's made by Niels & Alice at Luddite (our friends who make the Saboteur wines)
