Description

The Tamboerskloof Katharien Syrah Rosé 2022

The bright eyed, bushy tailed and overtly feminine Tamboerskloof Katharien Syrah Rosé was named after our youngest child and equally, bright eyed and bushy tailed, only daughter.

A med-full bodied, dry styled rosé with delicate pale pink colour. Perfumed aromas of summer berries, violets and grapefruit are present on the nose. The acidity is fresh, but the texture on palate is silky and the weight is good on the mid-palate with flavours of red cherry and spice finish the wine off. Ideally served chilled between 8-10 Celsius.

WINEMAKING RECORD

Grapes are harvested in the cool mornings, crushed slightly, and pressed. The juice is settled overnight then racked. Recovery is 550l per ton to ensure good colour and texture. Three yeast strains are used to add complexity and depth. 10% of the wine is fermented in older 500 lit/ton barrels and the rest in stainless steel tanks. The wine is kept on the lees for four months, after fermentation, prior to bottling.
