False Bay Whole Bunch Rose
This product is currently sold out.
The grapes for False Bay Whole Bunch Cinsault Mourvèdre stem from bush-vine Cinsault (mostly old vines) from Stellenbosch and Swartland, along with a small proportion of Mourvèdre from Stellenbosch which adds a savoury depth to the wine. These old vines produce naturally low yields and retain good acidity. Made by Waterkloof's talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard. Balanced grapes are hand harvested, whole-bunch pressed and fermented spontaneously with wild yeast in stainless steel and wooden foudre. The wine is left on lees for a minimum of three months before bottling. No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. Grown, made and bottled in South Africa. Vegan friendly wine. Coastal Vineyards, Sustainably Farmed, Hand Picked, Naturally Crafted, Wild Ferment.
False Bay ‘Whole Bunch’ Rosé wine is produced from Cinsault and Mourvèdre grapes. The winemakers prefer Rhône varietals when it comes to producing the Rosé as they believe these varietals impart elegant tannins to the wines and ensure a well-rounded wine. Old bush vine Cinsault forms the backbone of this 'proper' rosé. A pale, spicy and textural Rosé mostly sourced from bush-vine Cinsault with summer fruits on the palate and a lovely clean, dry and finish.
Perfect with Mediterranean dishes especially juicy pan-fried garlic prawns... or drink chilled on its own.
