The grapes come from the Coastal Region of South Africa, an area known for high quality wines from low yielding vineyards. All our growers are Fairtrade certified.
The grapes are picked at full maturity and gently pressed to give a light colour to the must. Fermentation takes place with a cultured yeast at temperatures of between 12 and 14 ° C to enable a slow fermentation process – this creates more of a mouthfeel to the wine. After fermentation, the wine is allowed to remain on the lees for up to 3 weeks, which gives additional complexity.
The alcohol is then carefully removed with a vacuum spinning cone process, which allows the alcohol to be removed without affecting the integrity of the wine.
The result is a fresh rosé wine with clear strawberry tones, herbs and citrus. An ideal wine as an aperitif on a hot summer day, or for tasty fish dishes and salads.
