We'll let Daniel use his own words for this one, he sums up his ethos and style rather wonderfully -

"Daniel Colombo is a winemaker. He makes wines that he wants to drink himself, but when other people like to drink them too then that is actually quite lovely. Daniel uses a style called minimal intervention which means his wines don't have lots of different things in them, just grapes really.

He enjoys drinking wines that are fresh and friendly, so those are the kind of wines he makes.

As a big fan of history it was only a matter of time before Daniel had an idea about a wine. You see, some of our oldest and most interesting vineyards in South Africa can largely be attributed to the brandy Industry. Daniel likes brandy, but not as much as he likes wine. So he decided to make a blend from the grapes previously destined for the potstill.
A skin co-ferment of Colombar and Muscat d’ Alexandrie aged in old oak."

Daniel is a young guy making the kind of wines we love to drink ourselves.
