VARIETY: Chardonnay 60% Pinot Noir 40%
Pale silver-pink. Aromas of raspberries, cherries and a few
secondary whiffs of minerality. A lively mousse but fine in the
mouth, with subtle red berry flavors enlivened by bright acids.
Brisk on the palate, showing hints of oyster shell and fresh
lavender. Flirtatious and fun, yet elegant and structured,
it’s perfect for all seasons and settings.
VINTAGE: NV AREA OF ORIGIN: Robertson and Stellenbosch,
Western Cape, South Africa.
VINEYARD: A selection of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from
our own estate grown vineyards in Robertson, Franschhoek and
HARVEST DETAILS: Both varietals are handpicked: Pinot Noir
at 19°B for complexity and length of flavour and Chardonnay at
19.5°B for fruit and elegance.
CELLAR: Produced in the Méthode Cap Classique cellar,
Whole bunch pressing with fractional recovery from the whole
bunches ensured that only the quality juice went into fermentation.
Chardonnay and Pinot Noir fermented separately. Colour is obtained
by an enzymatic reaction during the transport of the Pinot Noir
fruit to the press. This is sufficient time for gentle colour
extraction for this NV Rosé. After fermentation the portions are
blended and then lightly fined and bottled for the secondary
fermentation. This wine was given sufficient time on lees to
develop subtle yeasty characters but to burst with berry and cherry
