Tasting Notes:

Our Katharien Tamboerskloof Rose 2018 is a very pale pink, salmon-colored wine. The nose is highly aromatic a with a broad flavor spectrum profile noting lychee, strawberry, raspberry, citrus and violets. Particularly food friendly and versatile, perfectly mimicking our award winning Tamboerskloof Syrah 2014 with its mouth-bursting intensity. Katharien has depth, is well integrated, balanced -even spicy. All the fruit is from premier vines and 100% Syrah. No acidification proves that this wine is rich with balanced mouth-feel. Chill to 13 ̊C and open 30 minutes prior to serving.

The name Tamboerskloof means the valley (kloof) of the drums (tamboer). When the Dutch settled in the Cape in 1652, lookout posts manned with spotters were established on the hills and mountains around the peninsula. The first spotter was placed where the suburb of Tamboerskloof lies today. These spotters drummed the message of an approaching ship from one lookout post to the next until the farmers in the surrounding valleys heard the drums and proceeded to harvest their crops and hasten to Cape Town harbour with their wagons in order to meet the ship on arrival. Before moving to the Boland, Gerard, Libby and their two children, Spicer and Katharien, lived in this Cape Town suburb for 25 years. Thus, with the fondest memories and the need to acknowledge the happy years they had spent there, they named their wine Tamboerskloof.

14-year-old vines planted on Tukulu and Kroonstad soil 18km from the ocean. Grapes were hand picked.

The grapes were hand sorted across our sorting tables before being destemmed into an INOX basket press. Juice was settled overnight, where after the clear juice was racked off and 85% of the production was fermented in stainless steel tank and remainder fermented in 300L French oak barrels (5th fill).
