Donkiesbaai

The grapes for the Donkiesbaai Steen (Chenin Blanc) is produced on the farm De Tol of the Mouton family and is situated on top of the Piekenierskloof Pass. The vineyard was planted in 1979 and has no irrigation except for natural rainfall. The soil type is primarily sandy and the elevation of the block ensures that the vines cool down in the late afternoon by means of a berg wind. The fruit has a very intense flavour due to the mentioned climatic conditions and production is around 8 tons / ha. The grapes for the Pinot Noir comes from the highest block of Pinot Noir in the country – right at the top of the Witzenberg Mountain Range.  I cannot think of a better way to complete the Donkiesbaai story than with a glass of elegant Donkiesbaai Pinot Noir.
