The Legend Range – named after the legendary TPD (Theunis Petrus Daniel) Briers, a veteran Springbok rugby player, and a past member and director of Windmeul Cellar.
Briers, born in 1929, grew up in Agter-Paarl and during his early 20’s, he played for the town’s rugby club where he received his nickname by local newspapers ‘Pêrel van die Paarl’ which translates to ‘Pearl of the Paarl’ and he truly lived up to the name. He went on to play for Western Province and later for the Springbok Rugby team. He was known for his strength and speed and even though his Springbok rugby career was short-lived, it was glorious. He was a true legend of his time.
The legacy of Briers’ life was to live with passion, to enjoy life yet not to shy away from hard work, and to be grateful for even the smallest of blessings found in the nature around us. Enjoy the sound of the ocean, behold the beauty of the mountains, and soak up the splendour of a sunrise and sunset. Let us raise a glass of the Windmeul Cellar Legend Collection, in honour of the life of TPD Briers.
The wine is a blend of only the best selected Pinotage from different barrels, all made and matured in new small French oak for 18 months. The wine has well rounded ripe tannins that retain the natural flavour of Pinotage and will perfectly complement any meat dish.
