Frederik and Céline acquired their 180-hectare farm (nearly a third dedicated to wildlife & nature conservation) on the banks of the Onrus river in the stunning Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, close to Hermanus, in 2021. Their energy and passion already garnered rave reviews, and with Hannes Storm involved as cellarmaster and Natasha Williams as their winemaker, this is a farm that’s very much one to watch. An ambitious replanting programme aims to unlock the farm’s full potential, sited as it is on the area’s notable decomposed gravel and shale soils but with a distinctively rich presence of clay that sets the fruit and the wines apart. In keeping with the region’s reputation, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir hit the high notes and Hasher can already be considered one of the valley’s leading sources of the best the country has to offer.
