Description

A new release from Kleinood Farm.  

Minimum order: 6 bottles at R135 each.

de herder = the shepherd

The one who patiently walks the pastures in search of the best grazing for his flock. Inspired by this ancient practice, de herder was created from select parcels of carefully curated vineyards, to bring you a full-bodied and expressive wine from the Kleinood winery.

An enchanting medium ruby hue.

A sweet entry, with round velvety tannins and a youthful freshness.

On the nose: fresh cherry, ripe blackberry, with hints of thyme, black pepper, vanilla and cigar box.

The medium bodied weight gives way to a sweet, spicey and fruitful finish.

Pairs well with with lamb, duck or fillet on the braai.

Decant for 30 minutes prior to serving.
