Grand Vin de Stellenbosch Rosé


The Wine

This rosé is styled after the Provence wines; pale attractive in colour with delicate red fruit aromas and plenty of freshness.


Vintage Overview

The South African wine grape harvest 2019 hit a record low, largely due to the preceding drought and fluctuating weather conditions during the season. Winemakers are, however, positive about the quality of this vintage.


Winemaking

The vineyards are about 20 years old. The vines are planted in well-drained decomposed granite soil of Klapmuts mountain. Harvest was 10 days later than normal which helped to achieve and ideal balance between acids, sugar and pH. The components were vinified separately after whole bunch press separating the juice from the skins. The juice was treated reductively, preventing it from oxidation. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at 13°C and took 14 days to complete. Afterwards, the wine was racked and blended.
