De Kleine Wijn Koöp Die Posman Grenache Blanc 2022
By Christian Eedes, 19 March 2023
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. Price: R195 a bottle.
CE’s rating: 94/100.
