4 Stars Platters Guide
Our Kloof Street range is all about freshness, balance and great drinkability.
Grapes for our 2011 Kloof Street red were sourced from six vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland: One parcel of Mourvedre grown on the rolling, iron-rich soils west of Malmesbury; one parcel of Syrah and one parcel of Cinsault planted in the stony Shale and Schist based soils of Riebeek Kasteel Mountain; and one parcel of dry land, bushvine Syrah, one Carignan, and one Grenache all grown in the decomposed Granite of the Paardeberg mountain. Vines are aged between 12 and 40 years. We lease each parcel on a long term basis, and have close and direct involvement in their viticultural management.
Tasting note: This blend of Southern Rhone varieties has a perfumed nose of violets, spice and purple fruits. The medium bodied, food-friendly palate is finely textured with firm but approachable tannins and a fresh, energizing finish.
