A Provence-style rosé with a pale salmon pink colour. Fragrant notes of hibiscus, fynbos-spice and wild strawberries unspool on the nose. The palate is red-fruited and generous, plumped with raspberries, mulberries and sappy cherries; then lifted on the mid-palate with refreshing watermelon verve. Keenly balanced with a lemony acidity, all that beautiful, bright fruit is cradled in a fine-boned structure imbued from old oak ageing.
Careful bunch selection was carried out in the vineyard. The Grenache and Cinsault grapes were whole-bunch pressed, settled overnight and then allowed to ferment in 500 litre old French oak barrels. The Syrah portion was whole-bunch pressed and then transferred to steel tanks for fermentation in order to preserve freshness. The Cinsault and Grenache went through secondary fermentation for added aromatic complexity. This wine was partially matured in old oak barrels for 11 months, adding complexity and body.
