Tasting notes:
'Nicky Claasens' Grenache is always one of my favourite Vriesenhof wines, produced from a dry-farmed, 70-year-old vineyard in Piekenierskloof. Aged in older wood, it's fruit focused, with very pale colour, tangy acidity, notes of Angostura bitters and red cherry and fine tannins. Drink 2020-28.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 92/100

Alc: 13.5%

About Vriesenhof:
Jan Coetzee purchased Vriesenhof in 1980 and a few years later expanded it with its neighbouring farm, Talana Hill. Vriesenhof describes their approach as embracing unconventional wisdom. They don’t direct their vines into certain trends but rather allow them to be a true expression of their triumphs and struggles that nature has provided. In the words of the Vriesenhof family, ‘The winemaker is a humble servant of nature. His role is to give nature the opportunity to produce the best possible wine.’ Vriesenhof also produces a Conservation Collection wine helping raise funds for South Africa’s endangered wildlife.
