Duncan Savage introduced his own label Savage Wines in 2011. Duncan’s goal is to produce classic and elegant wines. Through his time at Cape Point Vineyards, Duncan has grown to understand maritime vineyards and this knowledge led him to source grapes from maritime and high altitude vineyard sites. He was also inspired by many great older reds from South Africa and abroad that have stood the test of time with moderate alcohol and gentle extraction. The small hand selected parcels of fruit are meticulously sourced from a number of vineyards around the Western Cape.
About the name Follow the Line, Duncan became terribly lost while going for the first time to have a look at some Cinsault vineyards he was interested in. He called the farmer for directions who just told him to “volg net die f*kken foon lyn”, which loosely translates to follow the line, which he did and managed to find the vineyard.
