98% Chenin Blanc / 2% Pinotage
This is an elegant Provence style rosé with fresh summer berries, giving way to fresh apricot aromas and a
balanced palate with a gently lingering finish.
Vineyards: The grapes are harvested from dry-land farmed vineyards in the Western Cape region, where the
vines are not trellised and are planted as bush vines. The vineyards are strategically planted on south-west
facing slopes to capture cool breezes from the Atlantic Ocean and cold Benguela current. Deep soils from
decomposed granite, clay rich, with good drainage.
Winemaking: With 14 days fermentation at 14-15°C, the grapes and juice are handled reductively to prevent
oxidation and lock in fruitiness. The wine is left on lees for two months to add complexity. The wine is then
dealcoholized by way of a gently spun cone technology. This is done under vacuum and at low temperature to
ensure that the wine retains its distinctive body, colour and flavour.
