Hoendertande Grenache is the first straight Grenache Noir hailing from the Franschhoek region. Also referred to as the "abalone" of the valley, sought after, treasured, and as scarce as hen's teeth. A flavorsome vintage with moderate temperatures throughout. These vines were planted in the early 2000's. Grapes are picked by hand and transported to the cellar in small crates. Red cherry and strawberry notes plus a subtle earthy note on the nose. Light-bodied with lovely pure fruit, fresh acidity and very fine tannins. A slightly spicy quality to the finish, thanks to whole-bunch fermentation
