Description

Kleinood Tamboerskloof Katharien Syrah Rosé 2023

A dry 100% Syrah Rosé with a delicate pale-salmon colour.
Medium-bodied, with perfumed aromas of fresh violets,
and ripe summer fruit like red cherry.
Finishing with lingering flavours of strawberries and spices.

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

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. Two yeast strains are used to add complexity and depth. 15% of the wine is fermented in older 500litre barrels and the rest in stainless steel tanks. The wine is kept on the lees for five months, after fermentation, prior to bottling.
