The Môrelig farm (the name means "morning light") has long grown and supplied grapes for some of the Swartland's most celebrated winemakers but encouraged by these neighbours, Andrew Wightman and more recently joined by his son Brandon began making wine of their own as members of the Swartland Independent movement.

From the outset Andrew’s wines have been made intuitively and naturally, respecting the unique gifts bestowed by some of the finest old vines in the Swartland.

The A&B's Blend (standing for "Andrew and Brandon") is a father-son collaboration and a blend of Chenin Blanc and Clairette Blanche, which comes from unirrigated bush vines grown on decomposed granite soils at the foot of the Paardeberg. Fermented naturally, basket-pressed, matured in old oak barrels for 8 months. It's glorious, with bright fruit on the palate, hints of honey and some greener notes, a lightest hint of old oak to round it all off. An easy-drinking, fulsome white wine with citrus and hints of green tomato, and a triumph of the otherwise tough, drought-affected 2018 vintage.
