Notes of red fruit aromas like pomegranate, strawberry and cranberry with nuances of candy floss and floral notes add to the complexity.

 

Cultivar

100% Pinotage.

Characteristics

Medium bodied Rosé Wine. Fruit driven and elegant.

Tasting Notes

Attractive rose-gold colour. This lovely rosé has an attractive “fresh cut flower” bouquet, with a strawberry undertone. The palate is layered and creamy, yet refreshing. A lovely drink for any occasion.

In the Vineyard

Soil: Low yielding, well drained vertical shale/schist
Yield: 8.2 tons/Ha
Aspect: West-North-West

Harvest

Grapes were night harvested and picked by hand to retain flavours.

Cellar Practices

Grapes were crushed, destemmed and given a two-hour maceration before being pressed. Only the best quality juice, with the softest shade of pink colour was used. The juice was cold fermented in a stainless-steel tank for 3 weeks in order to preserve its freshness and attractive Rosé flavours. The wine was kept on fermentation lees for 3 months to add some creaminess to the palate.

Ageing Potential

5 years after vintage, but should give more pleasure if consumed now.

Serving Temperature

Recommended to be served at 10°C – 12°C.
