2011 ROSE

WINEMAKING NOTES

 This Rosé from Askerne Vineyard is made from 79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah and 6% Merlot grapes. The fruit was hand harvested and after being given some skin contact, the juice was bled off (saignee) and then fermented in stainless steel tanks.

ANALYSIS

pH 3.39

TA 7.5g/l

Residual sugar 2 g/l

Alcohol 13 %

TASTING NOTES

Lively raspberry and cassis aromas dominate on the nose with fruit salad overtones and subtle yeasty notes. The palate is clean with fresh, lively berry fruit and cherry flavours. A hint of sweetness makes this a great Summer drinking wine with salads, quiche and light poultry dishes. Serve lightly chilled
