Piekenierskloof

Piekenierskloof South Africa For years I had been hearing about Piekenierskloof – not as a wine producer but as a source of grapes for numerous other winemakers, youngand old. I didn’t realise that Piekenierskloof wasn’t just a ward (the smallest geographical unit in the South African regional classification) but one large estate, formerly a co-operative but now...

Piekenierskloof, Grenache Blanc, Piekenierskloof, 2019

Piekenierskloof, formerly a co-operative but now privately owned, owns outstanding vineyards across the Paleisheuwel plateau in the Citrusdal mountains at 550-700m. of altitude – all dry-farmed with a high percentage of very old vines. The climate is perfect, with sunny summers and cooling breezes making for low yields and healthy fruit. With an impressive managing and winemaking team of Cerina and Jaco Van Niekerk in place, there’s smarter winemaking than in the past. Their Grenache Blanc is largely from very low yielding (the second drought year in a row) bush vines planted in 1987 on koffieklip (ferricrete, a sedimentary rock widely distributed in the Cape) and loam; and fermented in third fill, large French oak barrels.

An enticing nose of tangerine and pinneapple with a slight marzipann note. This is full of charachter, a winning combination of stone and orchard fruit and Mediteranean herbs. Well-textured and rounded, complex and long, with an appealing palate-cleansing pithiness, this is a delicious wine - a perfect match for herb-roasted chicken or vegetable cous-cous. Now- 2022

Just wanted to say thank you so much for sending my order of 2 x Domaine Begude Rosé to my son and daughter-in-law - I couldn't believe that they received it within a day of my placing the order with you. That is IMPRESSIVE, especially given the current trying times.
