Reserve Rose 2015
ABOUT THE WINE
Picture yourself ‘making tracks’ through the courtyard casually sipping rosé mid afternoon. This blushing Rooster has many different ‘feathers’ in the blend; 37% Syrah, 21% Malbec, 21% Mouvedre, 16% Grenache, 5% Petit Verdot. The grapes were cold soaked on the skins for three days, then a portion of the juice was bled off, a process called "saignée", and aged in stainless steel to preserve the fresh vibrant fruit aromatics and flavours. Limited production of 388 cases.
‘Pretty in Pink’ colour with a summer fresh aroma of strawberry, watermelon, crab apple, red currant, cherry and rose petal. The medium frame is supported by refreshing acidity. Flavours of red berry, currant and red cherry fill the mouth. Refreshing red fruits and red berry tea notes linger on the finish of this extra-dry rosé.
Fabulous aperitif or summer sipper. Enjoy with tapas, gourmet pizzas, pissaladiere, feta cheese, Greek salads, crab cakes, poached salmon, pan-fried panko crusted trout, spiced shrimp skewers, charcuterie plate, pork tenderloin with rhubarb sauce.
Available exclusively online and at the winery.
