SA Women's Wine & Spirit Awards 2019 : Gold - 2019 vintage
An elegantly pink hued Rosé with loads of strawberry, Turkish delight and cotton candy on the nose. Finishing off with a rich creamy sensation and a lingering taste of raspberry. A real summer refresher.
Optimum Drinking Time: 1 – 3 years. When you love cooking with soy, consider pairing the food with a rosé.
Cheese: Serve the rosé with acidic white cheeses and berry partners (fresh, jam or preserves). Also try feta.
With a cool continental climate, diverse soil types, unpolluted air and free-flowing crystal-clear waters. With minimal interference during the viticulture, this wine carries the sustainable practices of the farm. Shiraz grapes are hand harvested early morning at 22.5 balling. Grapes crushed at 8°C with approximately 8 hours plus skin contact before a light pressing. Two days of juice settling followed by racking and addition of selected yeast. Fermentation is at 11°C for approximately 24 days. The wine matures on fine lees for additional two months before final blending and bottling.
South Africa’s most uniquely situated wine farm falls within the pristine environs of the Cederberg Wilderness Area, which lies in the Cape Floral Kingdom. Here, among spectacular rock formations and fynbos, you will find the highest altitude vineyards in the Cape. Conservation is fundamental and Cederberg Private Cellar is a committed member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative.
