'Intense fruit aromas of apple and quince combine with honeysuckle and fresh pineapple on the nose. Medium-bodied, with well integrated acidity that lifts rich flavours of lemon meringue, preserved peaches, papaya, and honeycomb. A creamy mid-palate with a coating mouthfeel, and a long fruity finish.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2020 vintage:
'Stunning citrus zest, white pepper, beeswax and marshmallow flavours offered in a cloak of enticing, complexing granitic minerality.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 94/100 (Silver)

'Piekenierskloof chenin wows yet again in toned layers of featherweight, sunshiny fruit (pear, confit lemon), waxy wildflowers, persistent lemon curd creaminess. 2020’s gorgeous texture ensured by ageing in mix of barrel, stainless steel, amphora & concrete.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (93/100)

Producer information Jean Engelbrecht, owner of Rust en Vrede Estate, started the Donkiesbaai label, a project which he calls a ‘labour of love’. The name comes from the area where the Engelbrecht family’s holiday home is located. The grapes for the wines are sourced from Piekenierskloof and a number of varieties are produced under this label, including a sweet wine. Local critic Christian Eedes opines, ‘though the wines of Donkiesbaai have been most accomplished just about since inception in 2011, I’m not sure this side project belonging to Jean Engelbrecht of Rust en Vrede gets enough acclaim.’
