Eikendal Winery Announces the Release of their Highly Anticipated 2023 Rosé

Eikendal Winery is proud to announce the release of their latest vintage of Rosé, the Eikendal Rosé 2023. This wine is a unique blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, and Cinsault, and is sure to delight wine enthusiasts with its crisp, and refreshing taste. The wine also sports a brand-new, sleek and elegant label design.


Eikendal is known for its exceptional farming methods, using sustainable farming practices to produce high-quality grapes. Their approach to winemaking is equally meticulous, focusing on traditional techniques and careful attention to detail. This commitment to excellence is evident in every bottle of Eikendal wine.


“We’re thrilled to introduce our 2023 Rosé to the South African wine market,” says Aldert Nieuwoudt, winemaker at Eikendal. He explains that this wine holds a special place in his heart as it’s the first wine he’s personally made and bottled on the farm. The grapes used for this Rosé are grown in small quantities on the farm and specifically reserved for this wine.


Eikendal is located in the heart of Stellenbosch , a region renowned for its exceptional wines. The winery’s beautiful setting, surrounded by lush vineyards and towering mountains, is the perfect place to experience the magic of Eikendal wines. Eikendal is renowned for its exceptional viticulture practices deeply rooted in sustainable methods. The winery’s vineyards are in a prime location in Stellenbosch, against the well-known Helderberg Mountains, with fertile soils and ideal climate conditions allowing the grapes to ripen perfectly.


“We believe that because we love what we do and work together as a team, from the vineyard to the cellar, our wines reflect the true excellence of Eikendal” says Nieuwoudt. “That’s why we place such a strong emphasis on viticulture and sustainable farming practices. Our goal is to produce grapes that are healthy, vibrant, and full of flavour.”


Eikendal believes in preserving the natural balance of the vineyards. They use cover crops and crop rotation to enrich the soil naturally. Nieuwoudt and his viticulture team meticulously monitor the vineyards and ensure that the vines are healthy and disease-free.


“Our vineyard team is highly skilled and passionate about what they do,” explains Nieuwoudt. “Willem van Kerwel has spent more than 25 years teaching his team about the vineyards of Eikendal and knows every block like the palm of his hand. They work tirelessly to ensure that every grape is of the highest quality and that the vineyard ecosystem is healthy and thriving.”


The Eikendal Rosé 2023 is a testament to the winery’s commitment to quality and sustainability. Aldert Nieuwoudt, together with Christo Hanse, who has been part of this cellar for many years, ensured that this wine perfectly expresses the unique terroir and winemaking philosophy of Eikendal. It is a must-try for anyone who appreciates fine wine.


The wine is available from the Tasting Room and select retail outlets.
