The Story of Laurens Campher
CHENIN BLANC • VERDELHO • VIOGNIER • SAUVIGNON BLANC
Governor Simon van der Stel granted Muratie to a young German soldier way back in 1685. His name was Laurens Campher and he had a great love of the soil.
However, he had an even greater love – a slavemgirl named Ansela van de Caab. For 14 years, he’d walk 64 km (am3-day trip) to see his beloved Ansela. When she was eventuallymemancipated, Ansela returned as Laurens’ wife to Muratie. To this day the oak she planted to bless their marriage still stands in the same soil Laurens loved so much.
With intense flavours ranging from honeysuckle to pineapple, and a sturdy backbone, the Laurens Campher blend pays tribute to this man of mettle, passion and determination.
