Winemaking
Selected Shiraz and Pinotage blocks were harvested quite early to preserve theprimary fruit characters and fresh acidity of the final product (22ºB). The Shiraz ispicked about two weeks later which will add mainly to strawberry pink colour profile,rounder pallet and aftertaste. Fruit sourced from the Stellenbosch region. CoolMediterranean climate with loamy clay soils. Vines are trellised on a 5 wire hedge system. Fermentation takes place on the skinsuntil desired colour is extracted – about 8 – 12 hours skin contact. The juice isseparated from the skins and completes its primary fermentation in stainless steeltank at temperatures of 14 – 16ºC. Hereafter, this Rosé is protein and coldstabilised and ready for bottling.

Tasting Note
Fresh, breezy, easy drinking style from early ripening Pinotage vines and younghillside Shiraz vines. Handled gently to retain freshness and soft tropical berryflavors.

Serving Suggestions
Serve this wine chilled on its own. It also tastes delicious with fish, salads or opensandwiches.
