Grapes: 100% Cinsault
Style: Fresh, fruity
A contemporary rosé from this traditional and truly 'at home in South Africa' grape variety.
As you would expect of proper Cinsault rosé from any part of the world, this is pale shallot skin in hue, with a nose of fresh cranberries and mountain fynbos. There’s then a super bright palate of cranberries again, pink grapefruit and mandarin. It finishes clean, gently textural with the vivid vibrancy you would expect of Atlantic Cinsault.
This rosé is made from only bush vines aged between 10 - 30+ years. The vineyards of the Cape winelands, abundant with wild flora and fauna, boast fertile soils and an ideal climate to allow nature to flourish. Grapes are crushed and destemmed followed by 12 hours skin contact. Grapes are then lightly pressed to ensure that no harsh tannins are extracted. The juice is left to settle and fermentation usuallt lasts 3 weeks.
Served chilled, this is great picnic and barbeque wine for the summer. Try also with cold meats, seasonal salads or simply on its own.
