Description

(die pierewaaiers) = (the dandies)

A collection of rare Tamboerskloof wines
inspired by the exceptional grapes that cross our path.

“The charm of these wines lies in the quality of the grapes,
the care of the hands that create them,
and the soul of the places that they come from.”

Each wine comes in a recycled paper bag,
tied at the top with a thinly cut tyre tube.

Kleinood Tamboerskloof Chenin Blanc
(buurman)
2023

buurman = neighbour / guy next door

We’ve been admiring our neighbour’s Chenin vines for years.
They finally got the hint, and offered us some grapes…

Wine of Origin: Stellenbosch
(Grown 2km from Kleinood Farm)

This is a pale straw-coloured wine has a lively nose,
starting with wild flower and white pear.

A lemon and lime freshness support the fuller notes of pineapple and passion fruit, elegantly finishing off with a perfumed chamomile note.

The entry is fresh with a racy acidity that follows through to complex passion fruit flavours.

With very good length and good textured weight on the mid-palate, the wine finishes with tangerine notes.

All Kleinood wines are Vegan.
