Our newly bottled and recent released Piekenierskloof Old Vines Grenache is an effort to bring tribute to the very exclusive Piekenierskloof Old Vines Grenache, which has been described as hens teeth.

Partnering with Johan Van Zyl from the farm Heidedal in the high mountains of the Piekenierskloof Valley, we put much effort into this vineyard and winemaking to produce a very individually styled wine. The grapes are grown on 700 meters above sea level on decomposed granite soils and were picked beginning February from a mature 45 year old vineyard – planted in 1973.

In the winery we did 35% whole bunch natural fermentation which started slowly after three days of cold soak and completed in 7 days, then another 3 days on the skins after the wine was fermented dry.

The wine spent 9 months in older large format – 400L and 500L French oak barrels before preparing ( with minimum intervention ) for bottling.

Food pairing

Enjoy with roasted meats, especially with exotic spices such as cumin and allspice.
