The name Lammershoek dates back more than three centuries, linked to survival or the preservation of life in a harsh, untamed environment. Meaning “lambs’ corner”, legend has it that ewes sought shelter for their small lambs in the forest alongside the farm when they felt threatened by the black eagle which abounded here – locally known as the Lammervanger, meaning “lamb catcher” in the Afrikaans language.
This is a brand new and exciting wine to our Hong Kong portfolio. Made by one of the Swartland's rising stars, Craig Hawkins. Made from a 0.7ha block of 32 year old vines planted on a north-west facing slope which has a lot of the exposed Lammershoek granite which is abundant in the Paardeberg. The bush vines are farmed dry-land and organically.
