Dreams are weird

They're like your brain's way of saying: you know what the world really needs? Nonsensical story lines that nobody questions and flying cars.

And even though we know they're absolutely bonkers and possess zero relevance whatsoever, we waste no time telling people all about them.

Sad fact: nobody wants to hear it. There is only one dream worth talking about, and that's Martin Luther King Jr's.

Anyhoo, last night we had a dream where we featured half off tickets to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers live at the Department of Home Affairs. They weren't even performing. They just worked there. Crazy, huh?

About

Nestled in the Citrusdal Mountains, some 50 kilometres north of Swartland, is the magnificent Piekenierskloof plateau, which provides the perfect natural environment for vineyards to thrive. At 750 meters above sea level, the plateau’s climate is characterised by hot (warm) days and cool nights, which allow grapes to slowly ripen and develop complex fruit flavours. Ungrafted bush vines planted in the 1950s are still used in the production of Piekenierskloof Wine Company’s range of Fairtrade wines.

Product Features
  • Grapes are sourced from vineyards in the Piekenierskloof region from vineyards that were planted in 1973. 
  • These vineyards are all non-irrigated bush vines and grow on sandy, loam soils. 
  • The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 5 tons per hectare.
  • Grapes are handpicked and cold-soaked for 24 hours. 
  • Malolactic fermentation is completed in tank. 
  • Wine is matured for 12 months in inert 500 liter French Oak barrels
  • Lots of juicy red berry, strawberry, earthy and elegant notes of pepper on the palate with hints of cloves, cardamom pod and smokiness.
  • Well balanced with lively fine tannins and an elegant complexity on a long finish
