Martin further noted that Indaba production is overseen by winemaker Bruwer Raats who “may well be the most exciting and forward-thinking winemaker in Stellenbosch at the moment. No… make that IS the most exciting forward-thinking winemaker.”
According to Robert Bradshaw, President of Cape Classics,
“Indaba was developed as an entry-level wine range that consistently over delivers on quality. Our goal was to show the world that phenomenal wine can be made at this price point, The Wine Advocate’s consistent praise for the brand validates that we are meeting that goal.”
