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.

(inkommer)
2022

“We stumbled upon a special block of Grenache Blanc in the Piekenierskloof,
and couldn’t resist making this wine.”

inkommer = johnny-come-lately / outsider

This is a deep straw-coloured wine has a vibrant nose,
starting with Persian lime, lemon zest and goose berries.
The elegance of honey suckle adds a sweet perfumed finish.

The entry is sweet with mild acidity,
that follows through to orange zest flavours.

Medium length and good textured weight on the mid-palate,
the wine finishes with fresh toast and marmalade.

All Kleinood wines are Vegan.

WINEMAKING RECORD

The grapes were hand picked into lug boxes weighing roughly 17kg and transported to Kleinood. The grapes were then hand sorted and gravitated into steel tanks.

With skin contact maintained over night, the must was then gently pressed in a basket press to recover only 492 l/ton.

Fermentation took place in old French oak barrels, 2nd and 3rd fill for 6 months with gross lees.

SO2 was only added after racking and just before bottling.
