If you’re into whites with body and texture but not a fan of oak, THIS IS FOR YOU!! Yellow melon, kiwi fruit and hints of pineapple are the key notes to look out for in the South African bombshell. And let’s be honest you’re going to be saying “Tamboerskloof” in a South African accent from now on!!
Tastes like: All the Texture
Smells like: A Sunny South African Summer
Sounds like: Ugly Boy // Die Antwoord
Enjoy with: Your Bru!!
The Nerdy Bits...
Viognier and Roussanne are hand-sorted before being de-stemmed into the stainless steel basket-press. Juice was then settled overnight and fermented for twenty days with indigenous yeasts at a temperature of 15°C. The Roussanne was barrel fermented. 30% of the Viognier was fermented in 4th & 5th fill French oak 300L barrels, 45% fermented in in stainless steel and the remaining 25% of the Viognier was fermented in a concrete egg tank. After fermentation the wine was blended and stirred weekly for a four-week period.
