A medium bodied, dry style of rosé with a delicate pale-pink colour, and aromas of sweet melon, candyfloss and summer berries. The acidity is fresh and bright, and compliments the sweet fruit character of the Pinotage variety. The palate displays intense flavours of red cherries, melon, strawberry and raspberry, with a creamy texture. The delicate nature of this wine makes it fit for any occasion. Ideally served chilled between 8 – 10˚C
A cold wet winter with cool growing conditions. The early ripening Pinotage was unaffected by the late harvest rains.
The grapes were crushed and immediately pressed to prevent too much colour extraction. The juice was cold fermented at 130C until dry. Kept on the lees for 3 months prior to bottling.
