The Piekenierskloof plateau is situated 160 km north of Cape Town and 50 km from the Atlantic ocean as the crow flies. At 600 to 750 metres altitude these old, ungrafted bush vines, growing in sandy loam soils, are rejuvenate by cold air in the evenings during the growing season.

2022 vintage was preceded by a winter which again saw decent rains after a series of dry winters in the wineland of the Cape. The wines are concentrated and fresh with modest alcohols.

The grapes were carefully selected by hand in the early morning, preserving the natural flavor of the fruit. Only the free-run juice was utilized, left to settle and subjected to spontaneous fermentation. This fermentation process occurred in a mix of stainless steel tanks and 500-liter French oak barrels. The wine underwent maturation for an additional six months, with 30% in new 500-liter French oak barrels, while the remaining portion was aged in second and third-fill barrels.

"Beautiful white blossoms, tropical fruit with hints of vanilla on the palate. Rich, full and creamy with a well-balanced mid palate and elegant apricot that lingers on the finish."
