Product guide note

Renowned producer David De Trafford is behind this interesting wine from a new area of vineyards to the east of Cape Town, only 15km from the ocean. Made from a blend of red grape varieties this wine is a deeply coloured rosé . It is full of aromas and flavours of strawberries, herbs and some earthy notes. This wine is almost more of a pale red wine, rather than a dark rosé .

Production note

The grapes are hand harvested before 98% are de-stemmed and gently crushed directly into small open top tanks. Drained off the skins a day later at about the time spontaneous natural fermentation starts. Fermentation and further maturation takes place in 225l oak barrels for 10 months.
