Description

A delicious medley of fruit, florals and candied aromas opens doors to enjoy this wine as an aperitif or to complement an array of colourful dishes. Its vibrant character is marked with expressions of strawberries, watermelon, and cherry-nougat, tailed by notes of citrus, pineapple, and lemon verbena. And yes, it is as mouth-watering as it sounds.

Winemaking Notes

All grapes are hand sorted at the cellar to ensure the best quality. Syrah grapes are picked earlier with a 30% Sauvignon Blanc component and co-fermented to prompt the desired, perfumed aromas. Spending a mere breath on the skins, only a delicate shade of crimson pink is encouraged to develop. Ensuring further quality, only free-run juice was cold fermented with selected yeast strains.

Growing Conditions

Tapping into its cool environment overlooking the Bot River lagoon, this Rosé champions two cultivars. These two cultivars are signature grapes for our coastal terroir - boasting all the vivid aromatics that celebrate this style. Reaping the benefits of a slow ripening, the wine accentuates the attention given to vineyards farmed exclusively for Rosé. The 70% Syrah component is managed utterly different from Syrah farmed for red wine. The canopy shades the bunches, and the vineyard receives more water to nurture bigger berries.
