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.

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...

Piekenierskloof, Grenache Noir, 2020

Piekenierskloof has more Grenache planted than any other estate in the Cape, including parcels going back to 1973. All goes into old, effectively neutral, oak. Stimulating aromatics – strawberries and spice. Wonderful purity.  Mouthcoating texture. Lovely winegum flavours with notes of clove and pepper. A real Rhône challenger. Now-2025

“Intense aromas of nutmeg, ginger, blackberry, freshly roasted coffee beans, and a hint of toasted oak sitting at the back. The palate is very well balanced, with well-controlled fruit, and flavours of black cherry, damsons, olive, and Mediterranean herbs, with a grip of oak on the finish. Gold medal, 95/100”, 2022 Decanter World Wine Awards

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