    The ‘Ronkedoor’ pictured on De Kleine Wijn Koöp’s latest release Shiraz depicts the tale, representing a Shiraz block in the Walker Bay Valley that stands alone, isolated from the rest, though with the heart of a Ronkedoor and the potential to be something extraordinary.

    Description

    The word ‘Ronkedoor’ means ‘hermit’ in Afrikaans. The label sketch is based on an old Afrikaans fable about a quiet recluse of a man who rescues a little mouse from the claws of an owl, and raises her as his own.

    One day however the man realises that he is becoming too old to care for the little mouse and goes in search of a husband for her. They go on an epic search, consulting the sun, the wind and the mountains to find her a man strong enough to care for her as the Ronkedoor had.

    Producer Profile

    De Kleine Wijn Koöp (the little wine co-op) started out as just a few good okes making awesome wines with cool labels, calling in winemaker friends to make each very limited-batch cuvée. Now in the talented hands of winemaker Wynand Grobler, the range has gained greater focus and direction without losing any of the original irreverence and adventure. Given Wynand’s experience in the valley, Franschhoek is becoming a bit of a calling card but like in the past the “little co-op” spreads its net far and wide seeking out great grapes across the beautiful and varied terroirs of the Cape winelands.
