KLOOF STREET SWARTLAND ROUGE
Grapes for Kloof Street Swartland Rouge come from up to eight sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland, aged 12-40 years. The blend changes each vintage depending on the character that best displays the classic Swartland style. The grapes are 75% destemmed and 25% whole cluster pressed, and then fermented with indigenous yeasts, with pigeage once or twice a day. Aged 11 months in 3rd and 4th fill French oak 225L barrels and 500L demi-muids.
'The spicy perfumed nose has undertones of dark fruits. Each variety in the blend adds balance to the wine, filling your palate. Tinta Barocca brings tannin, Cinsault brings perfume, Carignan brings freshness, Grenache brings fruit character , and the Syrah ties it all together
