Donkiesbaai on the West Coast of South Africa. For many it is a harsh, desert-like, unknown frontier, but for those who have experienced its energy and unspoilt natural beauty, it becomes a life-enriching place to be. With Donkiesbaai comes Jean Engelbrecht, winemaker and owner of the winery Donkiesbaai and the legendary winery Rust en Vrede , long-standing family tradition with quite simply outstanding and remarkable wines. He skillfully combines a number of different elements and trends – traditional family history, product and packaging with pride in Afrikaans, and certainly not to mention in last place – outstanding wine making art! The boutique wine series Donkiesbaai is an homage to Donkin Bay where the Engelbrecht family for four generations have had there holiday home.
Light fresh straw colour. Tropical aromas of pineapple are well supported by fresh citrus notes. There is a subtle butterscotch aroma that adds to the complexity of the nose. The fresh citrus and lush tropical fruit flavours follow through beautifully onto the palate. There is a rich, round mouthfeel with a fine minerality that leads up to a full, balanced finish.
