Marras Swartland Los Tros Chenin Blanc
Martin ‘Marras’ Lamprecht finds the most fascinating parcels amidst weathered vines, like this Chenin Blanc from the granite slopes of the Paardeberg, and allows the varietal to express itself fully in the cellar – honestly – authentically. Handpicked and partially natural fermented. Matured on fine lees for 6 months. The Swartland Los Tros Chenin Blanc is lean, tight and shows a lot of minerality.

Marras Piekenierskloof Chenin Blanc
The Chenin Blanc was ripened on bush vines on the slopes of the Piekenierskloof mountain.The region is ideal for quality grape production, as it’s exposed to warm inland temperatures during the day and cool Atlantic sea breezes overnight, producing grapes that add depth and complexity in every single sip. Partially natural fermented and matured on fine lees for 6 months.

Marras Piekenierskloof Hanepoot
Marras Was Jou Hanepoot is a dry white made from Muscat de Alexandria grapes (locally known as hanepoot). This aromatic wine is well suited to pairing with spicy foods. Martin ‘Marras’ Lamprecht also loves puns, so Was Jou Hanepoot is a little reminder that we all need to keep washing our hands to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus within our communities.

Marras Piekenierskloof Grenache
From their perch in the lofty Piekenierskloof region, dryland Grenache bush vines are rooted in a dry layer of sandstone and granite soils, producing grapes of exceptional depth and complexity, with a fine texture and a purity of fruit flavours, that sings with every single sip.

Marras The Trickster Cinsault
In folklore a trickster is a character in a story, which exhibits a great degree of intellect or secret knowledge, and uses it to play tricks, disobey normal rules and conventional behaviour. Normal rules and conventional techniques were disobeyed when creating this light styled Cinsault, that displays the deliciously secret characteristics of this heritage varietal.
