'Swartberg is Reyneke winemaker Rudiger Gretschel's own project, focused on the Piekenierskloof region. This is a fresh, engaging, wild flower and summer meadow-perfumed cuvée of Chenin Blanc with 40% Grenache Blanc and 13% Palomino. Leesy and balanced, with neutral oak, tangerine, waxed lemon and pear flavours and a zesty, mineral-etched core. Drink 2022-27.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 92/100

'This white blend is peachy and pithy with a floral nose. This is a harmonious wine with great palate depth, flavours of aniseed and pear with a racy minerality.' - Rudiger Gretschel, Winemaker

Winemaker's notes:
The Miracle Bush White is a blend of 47% Chenin blanc, 40% Grenache blanc and 13% Palomino. The Piekenierskloof must grow the oldest and most exquisite Palomino vineyards in South Africa. This particular Palomino vineyard was planted in 1965. With its inherently low acid content the grapes can be picked at a low balling to make a fresh wine with an intense floral aroma. The Grenache blanc is picked riper to fill out the palate of the blend adding richness, depth and complexity. The Chenin blanc focuses the final blend with its firm acidity and mineral line. These vineyards are all dryland farmed bush vines. Hand-picked, the grapes are chilled overnight in a cold room. All the grapes are whole bunch pressed and lightly settled overnight before spontaneous fermentation sets in. The Chenin blanc is fermented and matured for 9 months in new 225l Mittelberger oak barriques. The Grenache blanc is fermented and matured in clay amphora, whereas the Palomino in 2500l Foudre.

Producer information Rudiger Gretschel is the Production Director at Vinimark and oversees winemaking at Reyneke and Krone. He has created wine under his own label after almost 20 years of searching for the perfect parcel in Piekenierskloof. The special block he found 10 years ago is a 2.4 hectare plot of pinotage located on the top of the Piekenierskloof plateau, owned by Dr Jurgens Hanekom. The vines are cared for naturally; there is no tilling of soil, no seeding of cover crops or any form of herbicides usage.
