On the West coast of South Africa and 3 hours drive  from Cape town lies Donkiesbaai, an open white sand bay lapped by the icy waters of the Atlantic. It has been the holiday home of the Engelbrecht family for four generations. Named after this somewhat isolated  spot Donkiesbaai, is owned by Jean Englebrecht of Rust en Vrede fame.

The grapes for Donkiesbaai wines come from the unassuming region of Piekenierskloof, which lies about 80km inland from the coast. Unirrigated bush vines are planted in deep sandy soils. Elevated sites have a warm climate with cooling evening winds. Minimum intervention is practiced in both the vineyard and winery.

A floral aroma of lavender overlays notes of flint and iron.  A lively combination of red cherries and black currant develops on the palate with sour red cherry notes adding to the tangy acidity. Cedar spice lends some savoury complexity to this medium bodied wine, with light yet firm tannins. Vibrant and fresh, with a long sour cherry finish.
