2016 ARENDSIG GRENACHE RED VEGAN WINE INSPIRATIONAL BATCH 2
Arendsig (Eagle’s View) is a privately owned farm with its own vineyards and boutique cellar situated in the (southern part) foot hills of the Robertson Valley. It is in this beautiful valley that Lourens van der Westhuizen and his team hand-select grapes of the finest quality, from which he hand crafts his quality wines with its unique and distinct aroma, flavour and character.
This Grenache is made from a single vineyard planted on clay, sand and river stone soil. The farm is located against Langeberg mountains, west facing slope, Klaasvoogds east, Robertson wine valley. Macro climate is Mediterranean, Meso-climate is influenced by everyday South Eastern breeze during summer, morning fog in winter, big variation in day & night temperatures, Langeberg and Riviersonderend Mountain range and Breede River that runs through the valley.
