Mphumi Ndlangisa is one of the few Zulu winemakers that exists in South Africa. He works in a negociant style, meaning he buys his fruit from different farmers around the Cape, and in 2019, was making his wines in an urban winery in the middle of Cape Town. More recently he has purchased land and is planting his own vineyards in Paarl.

The Merlot is his ode to Beaujolais / Gamay. He does a semi carbonic maceration on the wine for 2 weeks, and then ages it in old oak for a few months. The wine is bottled unfiltered and unfined, and so has a very distinctive cloudiness to it. But that adds a beautiful texture to the different bottlings, and the wines are truly very unique. The fruit comes from farms in Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, and so the wine is labelled as WO Coastal Region.
