    This deceptively elegant, refreshing, unique wine bursts forth with a rich floral bouquet, displaying playful citrus and deep fruit across the palate before the acidic, refreshing finish.

    Description

    De Kleine Wijn Koöp has had various stakeholders over the years but is today run by winemaker Wynand Grobler and his wife, Anya. It’s never actually been a “co-operative” but rather a vehicle to source grapes widely and make less mainstream wines.

    Grapes for Die Posman Grenache Blanc 2022 come from vineyards planted in the early 2000s on Riebeekberg, winemaking involving 50% fermentation in older 500-litre oak and 50% in stainless steel tanks, before maturation lasting nine months.

    Exceptionally pretty aromatics of pear, peach, citrus, potpourri, fynbos and hay precede a palate that that’s concentrated and direct – dense fruit offset by crisp acidity, the finish possessing a saline quality. Great balance, layers of flavour, a slight grippiness lending interest.

    CE’s rating: 94/100.

    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.
