Notes

'The latest release of Jan Boland Coetzee’s Grenache is one of his best yet, sourced from old vines in high altitude Piekenierskloof. Lightly wooded, it’s richer and dense than the 2014, reflecting the quality of the vintage, but with the same sweet, juicy red berry fruit supported by savoury tannins. 2017-23'. – Tim Atkin, Special South Africa Report 2017, 92/100

Tasting notes:
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.

About Vriesenhof:
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.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.
