More Information

Rijk's specialise in Chenin Blanc and Pinotage. The Reserve comes from their oldest bush vines on the farm, which are 22 years old. A barrel selection of our finest 7-8 barrels are done to choose only the top quality wines for this range.

A concentrated and multi-layered wine. According to winemaker Pierre Wahl, a 48-hour cold maceration period was given prior to fermentation to extract colour and fruit. Extraction during fermentation took place by doing manual punch downs 3 times per day. Skins were gently pressed before fermented dry. Malo took place in barrels, after which it was matured for 20 months in 60% new and 40% 2nd fill French oak barrels. This wine was made by blending a strict selection of the best barrels.
