In The Vineyard
Grapes are sourced from the Piekenierskloof region. Vineyards are planted in 1968, which makes the vines 47 years old. These vineyards are all bush vines and grow on sandy, loam soils. The vineyards are meticulously farmed and managed to yield below 4 tons per hectare.
Beginning of March 2016.
Grapes were handpicked very early in the morning allowing the grapes to retain their fruitiness and flavours. Cool crushed grapes underwent a three hour skin contact in static drainers before being fermented under controlled conditions at 11°C. 50% of the wine were fermented in new 300L barrels for 15 days.
This unique Rosé was carefully crafted with abundance of succulent strawberry, luscious cherry and raspberry flavours with subtle rose petal undertones that forms a surprisingly delicious experience.
