Advent Calendar Day 16, Vriesenhof Kallista 2017, on Michael Olivier Talking Wine…

Vriesenhof Kallista 2017

Vriesenhof Vineyards is situated on the foothills of the Helderberg Mountain in the Stellenbosch Wine Appellation. In a marine climate with cooling breezes coming up from False Bay ameliorating Summer heat in the vineyards.

The estate is owned and managed by Jan ‘Boland’ Coetzee, a legend in his time, as a rugby player for South Africa, a wine maker, a philanthropist, deep thinker, and more recently a recipient from Stellenbosch University of an honorary Doctorate.

I always think of Jan as the Burgundy specialist, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay being his ‘thing’. This wine and his Grenache Noir, clearly show his talent and versatility.
