6 x Piekenierskloof Shiraz 2018 with FREE 250ml Namaqua Olive Oil

R995.00 R780.00

Whilst Piekenierskloof is synonymous with Grenache, Jaco was immensely impressed with a parcel of Shiraz from Bergendal during vintage 2018 and decided to bottle the first single varietal Shiraz under the Piekenierskloof Pikeman range earlier this year. This wine inspired a whopping 91 points from Mr Atkin – not bad for a maiden vintage wine that sells for R130 per bottle form the winery! In his words, ‘this new release tastes like a Crozes-Hermitage, all plum, tapenade, blackberry and fennel, with smooth tannins and very understated wood. 2020 – 2025”.

Our Special includes:

  • 6 x Piekenierskloof Shiraz 2018 at R130 per bottle
  • FREE 250 ml Namaqua Olive Oil (worth R65)
  • FREE DELIVERY (worth R150)

Description

In The Vineyard

Grapes are sourced from vineyards in the Piekenierskloof region. These vineyards are all bush vines and grow on sandy, loam soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 5 tons per hectare and hand harvested in March at a balling of 26.

Winemaking

The grapes were punched down and pumped over in 3000 liter French Oak Foundre for 14 months. Malolactic fermentation in the Foundre as well.

Spicy, Leathery notes combined with fynbos.
