                 CELLAR: Robertson Cellar


                 AREA OF ORIGIN: Wine of Origin Western Cape.
                 Malbec from our Franschhoek Estate and Sangiovese from
                 our Robertson Estate.

                 VINEYARD: A trellised 13 year old Malbec vineyard
                 planted on table mountain sandstone in Franschhoek and
                 the Sangiovese planted with north/south row direction on
                 deep well drained red clay/lime soil, in Robertson.

                 HARVEST & CELLAR TREATMENT: Malbec
                                 th                                     th
                 harvested on 6 February and the Sangiovese on 20
                 March. The grapes were harvested, destemmed and left to
                 cold macerate on the skins for 4 hours and 8 hours
                 respectively, in horizontal stainless steel tanks at 12°C.
                 After this short maceration the grapes were pressed and
                 fermented separately, at a cool 13-15°C to ensure a fresh
                 primary fruit bouquet and light pink colour.

                 TASTING NOTES: “This Rosé is a vibrant fruity wine
                 with a lively coral pink hue. A bouquet of seductive rose
                 petal delivering a delightful sensation of raspberry and
                 cherry flavours on the nose with hints of candyfloss on the
                 palate and a sophisticated dry finish.”

                 SERVING: Enjoy chilled as an aperitif or with light
                 summer salads; display with pride on your al fresco table
                 or pack it with a smile into your picnic basket.
