The grapes for our Rosé were picked at 22 degrees Brix, crushed, separated from the skins, settled, racked and fermented the same as white wine. The wine was fermented cold, 12-14 degrees Celsius to retain fresh red fruit aromas. The delicate pink colour for the Rosé is derived from the red pigments that are released during the crushing process.
In the vineyard
The Cabernet Franc grapes are harvested from our SW facing slopes on decomposed granite soils of the Polkadraai Hills, while the Cabernet Sauvignon comes from heavier soils on our Banghoek property
Made to be enjoyed now, but can be aged for 2 years if stored in the correct conditions.
52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 48% Cabernet Franc
Terrific for a lunch time salad, pizza with friends or as the perfect picnic wine.
