De Kleine Wijn Koop, Eekhoring Rooi 2018
It's a Cape blend of Cinsaut, Syrah and Pinotage mostly from the Swartland plus a little bit from Voor-Paardeberg, made in a light-to-medium bodied style. It had a very light press, giving it just enough 'grip', but not too much. Think of it like a soft, flavourful minute steak just lightly seared, with a few good cracks of black pepper. Not a shy retiring type, our red squirrel; but most certainly a red of the 'session' sort. The ultimate braai red, if you will. Only a few thousand bottled produced in this debut 2018 vintage.

De Kleine Wijn Koop - 'the little wine co-op' - is a winemaking collective spearheaded by Rohan Etsebeth of Stellenbosch design studio Fanakolo and videographer Faan Rabie, making fresh, of-the-moment, bona fide African wines from some of the best vineyards around the Cape. The bottles are joys to behold, as you might expect from the creative brains behind some of South Africa's most-loved wine labels. These boys have noses for prime vineyards and grapes, and work with top drawer winemaking talent, so the juice inside the bottles is high caliber too. Minimal intervention niche wines, cool packaging, and charming storytelling.
