Cultivar: 100% Grenache
At Vriesenhof, the art of winemaking is a fascinating journey that begins in the vineyards and ends with the enjoyment that accompanies a raised glass. Follow this journey and you will most certainly pause for reflection in the solitude of the Vriesenhof cellars. Traditional wood maturation methods combine effortlessly with modern fermentation processes. Add to this an ageing process that takes place in a setting disturbed only by the patient ticking of the clock and the artistry of the winemaker at work and you’ll soon understand why Vriesenhof consistently delivers wines of true Stellenbosch origin.
‘One’s footsteps must be in the soil,
you must understand the soil,
the plant and the climate.’

Beautiful fruitful aromas of raspberry and blackberry with an undercurrent of oak. Rich flavours of raspberry, strawberry and vanilla are overlaid with cinnamon and white pepper on the mid palate with a finish of smoky leather and dried peach. For food pairing it works well with pork belly and lamb. Both savoury and sweet elements can be used in the food.
