Had a wonderful afternoon at Lynx with Dieter (wine maker) who shared some wonderful wines..... got to be the best Shiraz in Franschoek. Made our day, enjoyed the informal tour, the wonderful company and the excellent wines. Will continue to buy these wines now we have returned to the USA.

Thank you Dieter for showing us round your vineyard. We loved your wines and the story about how you ended up in Franschoek making some of the best wine we have ever tested.
