Renowned South African Wine Estate, Lanzerac wanted to reward their longstanding cellar master by giving him a platform to express his personal creativity in making wines.
The new series of wines pay homage to the local icons that have inspired the cellar master over the years: Dok for Dr Danie Craven, the rugby legend who often visited Lanzerac for a glass of wine; Prof for Professor Abraham Perold who was pivotal in the SA wine industry; and Berg Pad for the famous trail between Coetzenburg and Lanzerac.
We developed a series of proudly Afrikaans, proudly local designs that reflect the concepts and their roots in the region in an intriguing way. Blind embossing captures the spirit of the legends, creating an almost ghostly feel that ties in with the historical element. Each label’s story is depicted as a shadow under the name. The bottles are sealed with coloured wax and rounded off with a monogram stamp.
