We’re delighted with this first release of a Coterie Rosé which comes off an outstanding source vineyard.

A Wildeberg wine begins life when we fall for a specific vineyard. The next step is simply expressing that place. In this case we fell upon a block of organically-farmed, dry-grown bush-vine Cinsault grown on the Agter-Paarl’s mineral seams. To then capture that purity of delicate fruit and texture we chose to make a saignée rosé. The fruit was picked at a ripeness optimal for this rosé’s natural acidity, in the cool of dawn and trucked up the road to Wildeberg. The fruit harvested just made a full single press, which was then gently squeezed to old French oak demi-muids for natural fermentation. The colour comes just from that light press and spends no further time on skins. The gourd-shaped bottle amplifies the shallot-skin hue of the wine.

This rosé is a fine, lightly savoury wine with real depth. The older oak wraps this dry, mineral wine in a delicate creamy veil ultimately leaving a bright, structured and fine finish.

Drink chilled on its own or serve with fresh seafood, a quinoa and pomegranate salad or herb marinated grilled chicken tenders.

Coterie by Wildeberg Cinsault Rosé 2021 “Another wine to catch the eye recently is the Coterie by Wildberg Cinsault Rosé 2021, a wine inspired in part by a visit that Rossouw made to famous Provence producer Château d’Esclans. From Agter Paarl grapes, it was matured for some five months in old 600-litre barrels. Pale onion skin in colour, the nose shows subtle floral perfume and red berries while the palate is light, fresh and dry. It’s delicate but not insipid.” Christian Eedes, winemag.co.za (25th March 2022)
