Bernhard: "A single vineyard in the Klein Karoo (not next to Sinai Hill), a big part of me also grew up around here. This is a wine that goes off script to the known and heritage, and focuses on the horizons of viticulture frontiers in SA. My love for Grenache Blanc came from working in Spain’s Montsant and Priorat regions over two vintages. There I realised how similar the ripening climate and soils were to our own backyard Karoo region. Back in SA I started experimenting with planting my own Grenache Blanc in small lots close to Van Wyksdorp in 2015. Later in 2018 I met a farm owner that had actually planted some Grenache Blanc close to the Swartbergs Meiringspoort area (De Rust). Here I got to work with Hannes Vermeulen, the farmer, to rework these previously highly cropped vines. Planted in 2009 on these Schist and shale soils of our Karoo. It’s very far away....very. And in the middle of nowhere, between the echoing hills: the ‘Gramadoelas’."
