AHRENS FAMILY WINES
Albert Ahrens earned his stripes in the Swartland with Lammershoek, before working in Champagne, Priorat and the Rhône Valley.HH
He produces terroir-driven wines from all over the Cape, taking in the Swartland, Voor-Paardeberg, Stellenbosch (Bottelary to be precise), Franschhoek and Elgin. Wines that, in Albert’s words, have “an address” to them, an identity wound up in the environment. He convinces growers to sell him tiny amounts of their very best grapes, so while there's not much of the wine available, it comes from some of the finest fruit going, The Wine Kollective stocks the Swartland range..
