More Information

In the cellar

Whole bunches are deposited directly in the presses (pneumatic) and pressed very gently according to a Champagne pressing programme. Only the Cuvee (the best quality juice) is used in the blend. The colour is achieved by adding about 2 % of a specially prepared red wine made from Pinot Noir. After blending, yeast and sugar are added for a secondary fermentation in the bottle which takes 6 weeks producing the magical bubble. The sparkling wine is then matured in contact with the lees for an average of 18 months. After riddling and disgorging a small amount of dosage is added to balance.

In the vineyard

Slightly unripe healthy grapes are harvested early in the season by hand.

Ageing

Tradition Rosé can age for at least 3 years from date of purchase. With age the wine softens in flavour, maintaining its sparkle, giving a fulfilling balance of age and fruit.

Cultivar

35% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay, 30% Pinotage, 5% Pinot Meunier

Food Pairing

This goes well with all light dishes such as salads, fish and other seafood.

Awards and Recognition
