One of the finest local rose’s we have ever tasted! Grapes grown in the Franschhoek valley ( 38% Shiraz, 37% Grenache Noir & 25% Mourvedre ) have been vinified into a true Provencal-style dry rose.
On aroma it has juicy red cherries and strawberries intermingled with Turkish Delight and a touch of spice. A lovely creamy yet fresh palate showing a perfect balance between acidity and sweetness. Skin contact took place for four hours for colour extraction before pressing and removal of skins. Cool fermentation at 13˚C took place in stainless steel tanks before ageing on the lees for six months. 10% of the wine was fermented and aged in small French oak barrels. Varietals were chosen to complement certain characteristics of this French style Blanc de Noir. All four varietals were vinified separately and blended just before bottling. Food pairing: Salads, sushi, prawns, smoked salmon or on its own. Let’s pack our bags and go picnicking! Analysis: Alc 12.87%, Sugar 2.4 g/l, TA 4.8 g/l.
