PRODUCT OVERVIEW:

Located in South Africa's Citrusdal Mountains, some 50 kilometers north of the Swartland, is the magnificent Piekenierskloof plateau, which provides the perfect natural environment for vineyards to thrive. At 750 meters above sea level, the plateau’s climate is characterized by warm days and cool nights, which allow grapes to slowly ripen and develop complexity. This land was settled by the Van Zyl family in 1923 and is currently owned and farmed by the third generation on the estate where they produce unique wines in this single Vineyard appellation. Un-grafted bush vines planted in the 1950’s are still used in the production of Piekenierskloof’s range of Fairtrade wines including their award winning Grenache.
