Beautiful notes of sweet grilled herbs, barbecued and cured meat, fleshy, sappy black berry fruits and tapenade leading to a deliciously distinguished long finish. Real class for the money.

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Juicy and peppery aroma. I sense the alcohol initially. But on the palate, the dry fine-grained texture is the star, suffused with black and red fruit. Sweet and juicy but still fresh. 16.5/20 points. (JH) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Kloof Street Rougesoft has a soft, red-fruited nose with structured, softly complex aromas of spice and minerality. The palate is light with a firm structure and red fruit grip. Medium-bodied, the soft cherry and dark plum notes drive the palate with soft red spices, hints of lavender and violets, finishing with a firm tannic grip. This is ready for food. A correct and simple yet complex wine selling at this price Is rarely found. I believe that this wine is underpriced for the quality that it delivers. (AM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2017 Kloof Street Swartland Rouge, matured for 12 months in used oak, includes a touch of Tinta Barocca. The bright cranberry and raspberry bouquet is slightly earthy. The palate is medium-bodied and a little more assertive than previous vintages, delivering quite firm tannin, good grip and a slightly saline finish that leaves a residue of black pepper. A great value. (NM) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A light- to medium-bodied red, featuring strawberry and juniper berry notes, with blood orange acidity. Fresh and vibrant, offering light tannins and fine length. A crowd-pleaser. Syrah, Carignan, Cinsaut, Grenache, Tinta Barocca and Mourvèdre. (JM) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

K&L Notes

"90% Syrah, 4% Carignan, 2% Cinsault, 2% Grenache, 1% Tinta Barocca, 1% Mourvedre. Grapes for Kloof Street Swartland Rouge come from up to eight sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland, aged 12-40 years. The blend changes each vintage depending on the character that best displays the classic Swartland style. The grapes are 75% destemmed and 25% whole cluster pressed, and then fermented with indigenous yeasts, with pigeage once or twice a day. Aged 11 months in 3rd and 4th fill French oak 225L barrels and 500L demi-muids." (Producer's Notes)
