Description

VITICULTURE
The grapes were harvested from dry-land farmed vineyards in Western Cape, where the vines are not trellised and planted as bush vines. The vineyards are strategically planted on south-west facing slopes to capture cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean and cold Benguela current. Deep soils from decomposed granite, clay rich, with good drainage.
WINEMAKING
With 14 days fermentation at 14-15°C, the grapes and juice handled reductively to prevent oxidation and lock in fruitiness. The wine is left on lees for 2 months to add complexity. The wine is then dealcoholized by way of a gently spun cone technology. This is done under vacuum and at low temperature to ensure that the wine retains its distinctive body, colour and flavour.
OAK TREATMENT
None
TASTING NOTE
This is an elegant Provence style rosé with fresh summer berries, giving way to fresh apricot aromas and a balanced palate with a gently lingering finish.
FOOD MATCHING
Great alternative to any delicious alcoholic rosé wine to be paired accordingly.
