Description

‘Fourth vintage of this sophisticated Rose but the first use of this 27 year old Helderberg located vineyard planted on soft sandy decomposed granite just above the Craven Cinsault vineyard owned by Pieter Bredell. Three pickings make up the final wine which is fermented in old oak which removes the New World tooty fruity Rose character to expose the more grown up serious side of the wine a la Provençal Rose wines. The nose is loaded with wet slate, rain on granite, sun dried strawberries and pithy red cherry with a dusting of dried herbs. Cool, textured and quite glycerol in the mouth, this wine has lovely poise, precision and purity and a full mouthfeel more associated with higher alcohol wines…but all delivered at just over 12 Abv. A fabulous gastronomic Rose wine.’ – Greg Sherwood MW, 92/100
