2021 Rosé

(3 customer reviews)

If I could only make or drink one kind of wine for the rest of my life… It would be Rosé.

This Provence-inspired Rosé of Mourvèdre is an elegant, bright, and tastefully fruity testament to the rugged mountainside grapes found on the southernmost tip of Africa.

Only 500 bottles produced.

  1. Chris Eksteen

    WOW! Best kept secret of all times. Light with a rosy – citrusy nose. The colour reminds me of an African sunset, exactly where I will be enjoying mine with a cheese platter, fresh bread, and smoked trout.

  2. Philippe Jacques Janse van Rensburg

    What a remarkable colour! It most definitly has a fresh aroma with the covetted strawberries and cream flavours presented in its bouquet.

    An excellent edition of Rosé

  3. Ilse Groenewald

    Definitely my new favourite wine! This Rosé has a beautiful elegant color and lovely strawberry and rose flavors.
    A real ladies wine – love it!

Wines for the Wild

WinemakingStyle

Harvested by hand on the 17th of March, 2021 before sunrise. The grapes underwent 12 hours of cold maceration before being lightly pressed in an old wooden basket press the same night as harvest. 200kg at a time were pressed at just 450L/T to protect color and palate of wine. Juice was pressed to a large stainless steel tank where it settled out while chilling at 12 degrees C. The following morning of the 18th, the juice was racked to a smaller stainless steel tank for fermentation. Inoculated with Alchemy IV, ferment remained under 15 degrees C and concluded in just 12 days. Wine was immediately racked off lees, tank cleaned, and wine returned. It was then bottled just 2 months later.

The CauseWildlife Impact

R300,00 from every case of this rosé goes to Wildlife ACT to support their African Wild Dog conservation program. The African Wild Dog is the second most endangered carnivore in Africa and, for the species to thrive, they require large tracts of effectively managed protected areas and safe corridors for individuals dispersing to new areas. Wildlife ACT’s work includes daily, year-round monitoring of this species; designing, funding and fitting tracking and anti-snare collars to individuals; and assisting with the relocation of Wild Dogs to new protected areas. They are extremely susceptible to snaring and being persecuted when outside of protected areas and it is, therefore, paramount to their survival that the species is effectively monitored.
