The Tamboerskloof Katharien Syrah Rosé 2021 – all gone
New vintage released soon! Sign up to The Flock to reserve your allocation.
The bright eyed, bushy tailed and overtly feminine Katharien Rosé was named after our, equally bright eyed and bushy tailed, youngest child and only daughter.
100% Syrah, our 2021 vintage is a full bodied, dry style of Rosé with a delicate pale-pink colour. Perfumed and aromatic notes of mixed berries, watermelon and grapefruit are present on the nose. The acidity is fresh and bright, and the textured palate displays intense flavours of red cherries and raspberries.
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. Two 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.
