A superbly fresh rendition of 100% Grenache, this has life and energy thanks to the location of this vineyard at 700m+ in the Piekenierskloof Pass, on the way to Citrusdal and the deep granitic soils on which it is planted. The wine takes its name from the foot soldiers (piekeniers) who used to protect the livestock in the pass from cattle thieves, hence the name of Soldaat (soldier). A vibrant, and crunchy wine laden with citrus, tangerine and cranberry fruit rather than the seed, alcoholic characters one associates with Grenache in very warm climates. A spellbinding wine and the best vintage of Soldaat to date.
