Tasting Notes
A Rose made in a lighter style of summer drinking from our true South African grape variety Pinotage. The reason why we select Pinotage is for its tremendous fruit and lovely peach flavours.

This wine shows ample summer fruits on the nose - it is highly concentrated with raspberry, cherries and ripe peach and apricot notes. These flavours are carried forward onto the palate ending in a rich and soft aftertaste.

In The Vineyard
The grapes used for this wine comes from 15 year old trellised vines planted in the Bottelary Hills. The vineyards are planted in decomposed granite.
About The Harvest
Grapes are picked at a ripeness of around 22º Balling.
In The Cellar
The juice was allowed skin contact with the grapes for a maximum of 6 hours. The juice is separated from the skins and then inoculated with a homemade brew of yeast.

It is fermented cold in stainless steel tanks over a period of 2 to 3 weeks at between 11° - 15° C and left for a short while afterwards on its fermentation lees to extract even more flavour.
