Hermanuspietersfontein Die Martha 2010

Every family has a mater familias. Ours is a redoubtable woman with character, not to be taken lightly. She rules her family with a strong hand and a soft heart. Without pretension and forthright, she won’t hesitate to express her opinion. Her children and grandchildren honour and adore her.

Die Martha is a definitive Rhône-style blend with strong character.
