Located in Citrusdal at the base of the Cederberg Mountains in the Olifants River Valley, Piekenierskloof is an independent wine ward. An ideal climate for growing grapes, it experiences cold, rainy winters and long, warm summers cooled down by afternoon Atlantic breezes. The region produces premium wines characterised by intense fruit flavours, backed by subtle minerality and fresh acidity.
Mountain vineyards, such as the ones in the Piekenierskloof region, tend to have soil that is rockier thus leading to less vine stress that results in a more rewarding and delicate fruit profile. The terroir is rough and rife with fragmented sandstone, with some occurrences of granite. The deep retaining soils of the region also sustains the unirrigated bush vines throughout the long summer season, some that were planted in the early 1950s.
