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 beautifully pure Syrah comes from non-irrigated bushvines planted on decomposed granite soils on the slopes of the Paardeberg. Whole bunch fermentation, semi-carbonic, on skins for 10 days, basket-pressed then into old oak barrels for 9 months. All natural, minimal oak influence on the finished wine, which is super-bright with plum and strawberry fruit aroma, effortlessly smooth to drink and long in the finish.
