Reviews

Bright, very pale salmon-pink colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is soft with gently fragrant fruit aroma of strawberries and cream with red florals and a little confectionary lift, revealing subtle mineral nuances, forming an elegantly concentrated core. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has light aromatic fruit flavours of strawberries and cream, red florals and hints of confectionary with mineral suggestions. The palate is delicate with soft phenolics and balanced, lacy acidity lending a thirst-quenching mouthfeel. The wine carries to a light, dry finish. This is a soft and delicate dry rosé with subtle flavours of strawberries and cream, florals and confectionary on a mouthwatering palate with a light finish.

Winemaker's notes

Pale copper pink in colour, this Rosé has aromas reminiscent of the spice trails of North Africa – cardamom & nutmeg with hints of caramelised toffee apple. The generous palate is juicy & crunchy, taste buds dive into a delicious red apple, balanced with savoury pepperiness & mouth-watering acidity on the finish.
