Ship to South Africa

Don't be fooled into thinking that it’s all about looks by the demure blush of this rosé. Like the perfect slice of salmon sashimi it’s as delicious to the palate as it is easy on the eye. Focused fruit aromas and a crisp finish.

In the vines

Because the Mourvèdre (moor-vey-druh) grape is originally from the warm shores of the Mediterranean, it is heat-resistant and grows vigorously in our climate. Our small vineyard of less than one hectare is pruned to retain a large number of growth positions. This reduces the vines’ vegetative vigour and yields a balance between growth and fruiting.

The 2019 growing season was notable for moderate temperatures and a long ripening period. Slow, even ripening led to good colouring of the berries. The rosé fruit arrived in excellent condition at the winery.

The wine

Mourvèdre has traditionally been used for the production of high quality rosé wines in Provence. It was therefore a natural step to use our estate vineyard and try it for ourselves. We have always enjoyed adding a bit of Mourvèdre to our Syrah for its spicy & earthy flavours.

This rosé stands out with a light salmon pink colour and a bit of orange peel on the rim. The wine elicits aromas of rose water, strawberries, watermelon, and black currant. It has a crisp, dry finish and is perfect alongside the braai. Serve chilled, at 7-9°C.
