Diemersdal Sauvignon Rosé 2016 (6/case) (R79/BOTTLE)
The wine was vinified separately during the 2015 vintage. Traditional reductive Sauvignon Blanc Winemaking. Three weeks before bottling, 7% fresh Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 was added to the Sauvignon Blanc until the perfect rosy coral colour was matched.
Post Fermentation lees contact for 1 months, stirred up once a week to enhance mouth feel and concentration. Blended 3 weeks before bottling and stabilization.
Delicate, fruity and lively, with distinctive Sauvignon Blanc aromas of passion fruit and lime, with hints of the cherry and strawberry flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon. A balanced palate with crisp acidity and fruity undertones.
Food suggestions: Served well chilled on any occasion.
