Natural Winemaking: Episode 1 /3.

Introduction to the Swartland, Marius Malan and Paardebosch Winery.
Marius Malan’s Winemaking Philosophy: “Every winemaker must have a philosophy of some kind, if we don’t, then we can just as well call ourselves food technicians according to mine. I stand for the minimal interference with the natural process. Once you try to force soil, a plant and his fruit in a way that you want him to be, you kind of missed the point. For me to create a great wine is about guiding the process instead of forcing it. Rather pick your soil, variety and clones correctly, than using random picked fruit.
