# 92 points – Tim Aktin South Africa Special Report 2017 #
The grapes were harvested from selected vineyards, each adding complexity to the blend due to their unique terroir. The Grenache comes from old bush vine vineyards in the Piekenierskloof. The Shiraz is harvested from a dryland block with shale soils in the Swartland and the Cinsault from an old bushvine vineyard planted in 1932 in Franschhoek.
‘Hiervandaan’ (meaning ‘from this place’) is a word with special significance in the colonial history of the Cape. It was used by early European settlers to define their new identity: ‘Ons is hiervandaan, ons is Afrikaners.’ (‘We are from this place, we are Africans.’)
