Grape - Syrah, Cinsault
Where - Western Cape, South Africa
What - De Kleine Wijn Koöp started life as a few friends getting together to make easy-going wines with awesome, standout labels. When they drafted in help from head winemaker, Wynand Grobler, the collection started to expand in quality without losing any of the trademark sense of fun.
The Klipkers Syrah is a banging natural, organic red wine that's a great value option if you want to give De Kleine Wijn Koöp wines a try (do it!).
It's full to the brim with beaut red fruit flavours. Ripe cherries and darker forest fruits really come through at first before opening out to reveal a hearty spice. Pepper and clove create a lengthy finish alongside the earthiness that is iconic for the Franschoek area.
Ripe, earthy, spicy. Vegan. Low intervention. Organic. ABV 14%.
