After graduating in Viticulture and Oenology from the University of Stellenbosch as one of the top students in 1984, Martin became well known as the leading light behind the now world famous wine of Vergelegen. Since 1997 he has concentrated all his energies and winemaking skills on his family’s Devon Crest Vineyard in Stellenbosch’s Devon Valley, and winemaking for his friend Ken Forrester. The approach is very terroir-based, with four wines being made. Devon Crest is a rich and elegant blend of Cabernet and Merlot from four different vineyard sites; Synchronicity, the flagship wine, is a low yielding vineyard selection from Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinotage, which earns the greatest accolade. Single varietal Merlot and Pinotage complete the set. Charming, down to earth and with fantastic winemaking skills, Martin’s boutique offering is a jewel in our award winning South African portfolio.
Other wines by this producer
Delicate floral fruit with underlying grassier tones. As it ages mineral and flinty flavours come to the fore, so don’t drink all of it too young!
Fresh, rich red colour. The nose is an appetising mix of redcurrant, mint, spice and mineral aromas, the palate is soft and finishes smooth and crisp.
Full bodied and elegant yet it has richness on the mid-palate. The emphasis is put on fruit
flavours through gentle extraction methods.
A big rich wine from South Africa that emanates wild berry and sweet plum aromas. Silky, velvety texture and elegance in the mouth that counterpoints its power.
