Rosé 2021

R 85.00

Trellised and bush vine Pinotage and Cabernet Sauvignon from the Coastal Region were purposefully grown to produce our high-quality Rosé. With supplemented irrigation, the well-drained vineyards planted in weathered shale soils, produced 12 tons per hectare.

Pale rose gold in colour, with a pronounced bouquet of watermelon, raspberry coulis and passion fruit. The palate is dry with a medium acidity, packed with red berry flavours, floral undertones and a crisp citrus tail.

De Grendel Rosé is the ideal partner for lighter summer fare such as spicy prawns, Portuguese sardines and salads made with red fruits such as watermelon, raspberries, strawberries and pomegranate.

This youthful and vibrant wine is best enjoyed early while still fresh and crisp.

The season presented a cold winter with good rainfall that ensured a terrific growing and ripening period during spring and summer. Due to a few small heat spikes and rain showers in January, the vines were exposed to stop-andstart conditions. This complicated determining the accurate stage of ripeness which required viticultural expertise, experience, and patience. The 2020 crop size was average.
Produced from 50% Pinotage, renowned for producing fine fruitdriven Rosé, and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, providing structure and acidity. Grapes were handpicked between 20°B and 22.5°B before destalking and crushing. One to two hours skin contact allows for a lighter style wine, followed by settling and racking prior to cold fermentation at 14°C.
