Duncan Savage, previously the winemaker at Cape Point Vineyards, introduced his own label in 2011, with a goal to produce rock-solid, classic and elegant wines. Through his time at Cape Point, Duncan grew to understand maritime vineyards. This knowledge led him to source the grapes for Savage wines from maritime and high altitude sites around the Western Cape. The small hand-selected parcels receive much love and attention through the growing season, with each vineyard’s unique terroir contributing in its own special way to the blends. Duncan is inspired by the great older reds from South Africa and abroad that have stood the test of time, made with gentle extraction and moderate alcohol.
