The Kleinood Tamboerskloof Viognier 2020: All Gone

New Vintage Release: September 2021

Pale straw colour, with a green tinge. The Kleinood Tamboerskloof Viognier 2020 opens with apricots and tangerine, developing into honeysuckle, orange blossom and rose with a hint of spice and nutmeg. The entry of the wine is fresh and racy, but the weight and texture create a lingering finish enticing your palate to ask for more.

WINEMAKING RECORD

Our Viognier vines were suckered at least 4 times in the growing season to ensure good light exposure and airflow which in turn afforded good expression of aromas. The Viognier was harvested between 22-23.5 degrees Balling. Roussanne grapes were harvested at around 21 degrees Balling. Grapes were sorted three times before being left on the skins overnight to ensure good flavour extraction. They were then lightly pressed in a basket to ensure just the right amount of phenolics extraction. Extraction was at +/- 450L/ton. Just was settled overnight racked and fermented in stainless steel, concrete egg and 3rd/4th filled barrels. Aged on less for 4 months.
