Pinotage Rosé 2023
Sharing this bottle at sunset watching the sky turn pink is one of our favourite things to do, especially under the wild olive tree at the top of our hill. If the night goes well, this wine’ll be good for sunrisers, too. Made for spontaneous and carefree moments.
Light pink in colour with buckets of strawberries and cotton candy bursting forth on the nose, accompanied by subtle herbaceous and rose petal undertones. Light and refreshing on the palate, with the wine showing good acidity which carries the flavours through and leaves you wanting more .
IN THE VINEYARD
Made from 7-year-old Pinotage vines planted in weathered granite soil.
IN THE CELLAR
Grapes are machine harvested and spend 3 hours in the press to extract colour. After gentle pressing the juice is transferred to stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Various yeast strains are used for inoculation to preserve and exhibit true varietal characters. 10% aromatic Sauvignon Blanc is blended into the wine after fermentation to make Kaapzicht’s signature Provençal-style rosé. The wine is aged on fine lees until bottling.
