Ansela van de Caab

The Story of Ansela van de Caab

CABERNET SAUVIGNON • MERLOT • CABERNET FRANC

For three days Laurens Campher - a dashing German soldier and then owner of Muratie – would walk to see the love of his life, Ansela van de Caab.

But Ansela, having been born into slavery in the quarters of the Cape’s notorious castle, meant the illicit love affair and most dangerous liaison had to be kept a secret. Emancipation only came in 1699 when Laurens collected and married this once child slave, who became mother of his three children.

Matured for 22 months in French Oak, the Ansela van de Caab delivers concentrated fruit notes rich with cigar box nuances – blended lovingly in a celebration of freedom and the courtship at the castle.
