Rall Grenache Blanc 2020

"This 2020 Grenache blanc still produced from the same dry farmed, ungrafted bush vines in the Piekenierskloof is my favourite to date. The idea behind this has always been to make a wine that reflects the fresher and lighter side of this variety but with a much smaller crop the wine has great concentration and length at only 12.5% alc without losing the energy. Picked in 2 stages and only fermented and matured in concrete eggs and clay to ensure nothing but the vineyard, the place and the variety are expressed in the final product. Like the other white wines in the range, the grapes are whole-bunch pressed and transferred without settling straight to the vessels for fermentation. This vintage spent 9 months on the lees in concrete egg and amphorae before bottling without any heavy filtration." Winemaker's notes

David & Nadia Grenache Noir 2020

R365.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 vintage consists of four Grenache noir vineyards, with the core a vineyard from the Paardeberg planted in the early 2000s. Joining this vineyard is anotherPaardeberg vineyard, recently planted on the north-eastern side of the Langkloofvalley, overlooking the Aprilskloof. Another addition is a 2016 planted vineyard in schist of the Kasteelberg. This vineyard was planted on terraces high up in the mountain. Finally, Grenache noir from a farm north of Malmesbury was also added, a vineyard we have been working with since 2012. A component of the wine was fermented and matured in concrete. Juice was kept on the skins for four weeks pre-/during fermentation and 60% whole bunches were used. One punch down per day was done resulting in minimal and gentle extraction. The wine was pressed off and matured in old 500 L neutral French oak barrels as well as a 2 700 L concrete vessel for a year."- Winemaker's notes
