Light, bright red in the glass. Layers of fresh cranberry, cherry, fynbos and spice entices the nose. On the palate tight tannins bring linearity to the red fruit flavours and fresh acidity.
Berg-en-dal is the name of the farm where this old Grenache noir vineyard stands in the Piekenierskloof valley. The Grenache was planted in 1973, making 2018 its 45th year grounded in these soils where the extreme difference between day and night temperatures aids to create a healthy environment for dry land bush vines. Grenache old vines are synonymous with this area and some of the best Grenaches are produced from grapes grown here. Some say the farmers here did not get the message to plant fashionable Cabernet Sauvignon in the 80ies and 90ies – and we are grateful that they didn’t!
