A pleasing blend of Shiraz and Grenache. The nose has a pretty, cherry quality. On the palate, fresh red and dark fruit flavours combine nicely. This is rounded, soft and eminently drinkable on it's own. Alternatively it would be a delight... Read More

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, young and old.

Piekenierskloof, Stonedance, Hutton Red, Swartland, 2019

A pleasing blend of Shiraz and Grenache. The nose has a pretty, cherry quality. On the palate, fresh red and dark fruit flavours combine nicely. This is rounded, soft and eminently drinkable on it's own. Alternatively it would be a delight with homemade burgers (beef, venison or vegetarian!) Now-2023

Hutton is a type of soil in the Cape; usually to be found on the lower slopes and plains. Derived from granite, it's yellowish or rust-coloured, mildly acidic, but has decent structure and water-retaining qualities.

Stonedance is the second label of the Piekenierskloof estate, a former co-operative which is enjoying a revival under private ownership and the impressive leadership  of Cerina van Niekerk.

More delicious wine from Stone Vine and Sun. Highly recommended.

Some wine companies lean towards hype and publicity. Stone Vine & Sun lean towards grape and efficiency. Their depth of knowledge and experience and their spread of source manifests itself in…
