Donovan Rall is one of the key figures in South Africa’s explosive New Wave movement. One of the original “garagista” producers in the Swartland, and can now proudly say that he makes some of the most highly sought-after wines in the country.

Well-travelled, affable, and ambitious, he trained at the University of Stellenbosch in viticulture and enology with David Sadie, amongst others, then worked in wineries across Europe and Australia before returning to South Africa in 2007. There he joined Eben Sadie as an assistant winemaker but in the space of a year, he had six barrels tucked away under his own name, and the inaugural Rall White was born. 

Since striking out on his own, he's has not looked back, still buying up small parcels of top-quality fruit, contracting vineyards, and strengthening his reputation as a master blender. Over time he has fine-tuned his style towards fresher, more vivid wines, and the wines have never looked better. Fermentations are natural and spontaneous with no interventions, and aging takes place in various vessels including concrete, cask and amphora depending on the variety. Even though he's Primarily Swartland based, he also takes fruit from Piekenierskloof, Darling and Stellenbosch.

This is a Dry, Medium bodied wine with High acidity and Low tannin. It is Medium+ in it's intensity with Medium alcohol and a Medium+ finish.
