Sunday Times - - Food & Drink - LANZ­ERAC WINE ES­TATE WY­NAND LATE­GAN

Lanz­erac Wine Es­tate, home to the world’s first bot­tled Pinotage, is still cul­ti­vat­ing award-win­ning wines un­der the lead­er­ship of Cel­lar Mas­ter Wy­nand Late­gan. Bal­ance is the key el­e­ment of his wine­mak­ing ap­proach – bal­ance be­tween the fruit, tan­nin, al­co­hol, mouth-feel and the use of wood. Apart from spend­ing most of his time in the vine­yards or cel­lar, Wy­nand is an avid out­door en­thu­si­ast, is mar­ried and is a dot­ing dad to three beau­ti­ful girls.
