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.

This comes from a tiny block of the oldest Chenin Blanc vines, planted on decomposed granite and extremely low-yielding. Roughly 200 bottles of this were produced in the 2017 vintage and barely 30 litres in 2018. Incredibly pure, intense representation of Swartland Chenin. Hay and lanolin minerality, gorgeous texture, heady floral aromatics, intense dried fruit and saline finish. A very rare beauty of a wine.
