About Ingwe Wines

The name Ingwe means ‘leopard’ in Xhosa French winemaker Alain Moueix embarked on a partnership with local wine entrepreneur Graham Knox in 1995 and produced labels such as Naledi (a single-variety Cabernet Sauvignon) and Sejana (a single-variety Merlot). It was in 1997, that Moueix (owner of Château Mazeyres in Pomerol and Château Fonroque Grand Cru Classé in St Emilion) bought Ingwe.

Once he bought it a programme to plant red varieties was initiated and Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Tempranillo were planted. You’ll find the estate along the slopes of Schaapenberg ridge along the False Bay coast. Mouiex enjoys the process of winemaking in the New World where there’s a lack of restriction on what is planted and space for new ideas.

Together with viticulturist Francois Baard and winemaker PJ Geyer, one of the ranges they produced is the Amelho. It began as a 2001 vintage which is a blend of Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Each year more varieties were added until one day all seven red varieties will go into the wine under this label.
