Kara-Tara is a new joint-venture between Rüdger van Wyk (2018 Diners Club Young Winemaker of the Year) and José Conde of Stark-Condé Wines. The name “Kara-Tara” refers to a small town near Knysna, located in South Africa where the owner and winemaker, Rüdger van Wyk grew up. Translated from the Khoisan, the language from the first people in Southern Africa, it means “deep dark shadows” and refers to the Karatara river that runs through the town.
"This wine excites me so much with its clean lines, forward fruit, and South African sense of place." - TJ
