An evening of fine English Wine!

Quaff Hove, Thursday 20th June, 7.30pm

Marras Piekenierskloof Grenache

The small and mighty label `Marras` is led by talented young winemaker, Martin Lamprecht. As a one-time student at Cederberg under David Nieuwoudt`s wing, and having previously also worked in the Rhône, Martin brings fresh ideas to his current home in the Swartland, a melting pot for hot new talent and South Africa`s leading region for liberal winemaking and experimentation.

In his own modest words, “All I really do is take the grapes by their hands and guide them to where they want to be.” Using grapes from the vast plain and the elevated terroir of Piekenierskloof, he makes some bright new examples of Chenin, Grenache, and a Shiraz Cinsault blend.

Country: South Africa

Product Type: Wine

Wine Colour: Red

Grape: Grenache

Volume: 75cl

Producer Profile 

Son of the soil Martin ‘Marras’ Lamprecht was born Capetonian and raised in the small town of Dundee in KwaZulu-Natal. He blames his close-knit family for his love of life and all the beautiful and delicious things in it. It was this joy of sharing experiences that sent Marras down the winemaking path; he graduated from Elsenburg Agricultural Training Institute with a Cum Laude in B.Agric Cellar Technology in 2010, the academic equivalent of All Gold Tomato Sauce. Armed only with the best recipe for braaibroodjies and fledgling ambitions, he was then mentored by the legendary David Nieuwoudt of Cederberg Wines. The time came to share that recipe with others, and Marras with the searching soul of a jackal made his way to the Northern Rhône Valley, France and found that he had quite a bit to learn from the French, including that a winemaker must never overestimate his own importance. They also taught him how to produce wines that showcase the history of the vineyard and its people, while introducing him to some of the singular varietals he came to rediscover back home in the Swartland and Piekenierskloof. In return he showed them how to properly gooi a braai.
