Vibrant pale coral and light salmon hue on display with this delightfully refreshing rosé. Orange citrus notes of grapefruit and tangerine are apparent, with fresh cut watermelon, wild flowers and lemon zest playing a supporting role. The delicate palate is clean and refreshingly dry, with more of the same watermelon and citrus fruit adding sweetness and balance to the long finish.
Each vineyard was harvested separately by hand in the cool early morning hours to capture the fresh flavours. The fruit was both de-stemmed/crushed and whole-bunch pressed before overnight settling. The individual parcels were fermented separately by a selection of cultured yeast strains in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine was allowed to spend time on the lees in order to build a full, well-rounded palate before being blended and bottled.
Mourvedre (41%) Cinsaut, (29%) Grenache, (21%) Carignan (5%) Syrah (4%)
Anthonij Rupert Wyne proudly introduces the Protea Range. Everything about this range seeks to marry the old with the new. The heritage of the vines, innovatively tied into distinctive packaging designs, is made to be re-used and recycled, thus prolonging the lifecycle of the product. While we are celebrating Cape wine culture, we have stripped it down to some of the defining elements of the landscape, irrevocably tying the brand to the land. We invite you to be the judge!
