2019 Cape Jaffa Rosé
Style: Dry in style but with vibrant and juicy fruit characters. Savoury, textural, dry and complex.
The inspiration: Certain varieties lend themselves to Rosé and we feel that Shiraz is one of them. The fruit was picked riper than usual for Rosé pressed and kept on full solids. Alcoholic fermentation kicked off spontaneously and extra lees were added post alcoholic fermentation.
This wine is always 100% Shiraz grapes purposely picked for our Rosé. A refreshing style savoury, textural, dry and complex. With hints of white strawberries and cream on the palate, this wine has refreshing acidity and is very drinkable - to be enjoyed and contemplated with good friends and great food.
Cellaring: This is a fruit driven wine, at its best in its youth however it will evolve into a more tertiary and complex style in the bottle over up to two to three years.
Food pairing: Versatility is Rosé's greatest claim to fame. It’s ideally suited to light fresh Summery food and lunchtime occasions. Think Seafood bouillabaisse, antipasto and Mediterranean food.
