Riebeek Cape Rose
Riebeek Cellars
South Africa - Western Cape - Coastal Region - Swartland

An elegant rosé made from South Africa’s own Pinotage grape. Bursting with flavors of fresh strawberries and ripe cherries, with a crisp dryness on the palate. Fresh and fruity style.

Vinification
100% Pinotage grapes were harvested early in the morning and left on the skins until enough colour and flavour were extracted. The juice was settled overnight and then inoculated with selected yeast. Cold fermentation ensured capturing of all the natural fruit flavours.
Pairings

Enjoy well-chilled on its own with good friends during a rosy sunset or with lighter meals like pasta, seafood and salads. Beautiful with smoked salmon, crayfish and prawns or cured meats and freshly baked bread.

wplogo"Tart, with sour cherry, orange peel and a slight bitterness of the finish — an interesting and delicious contrast to the riper, sweeter style that seems to dominate this year. It also has wide availability in all three local markets. ABV: 12.5 percent." - Dave McIntyre

wa"Even the 2015 Pinotage Rosé (100% Pinotage—a grape I generally loathe) shows beautiful strawberry and berry fruit with a hint of herbs and spice. Drink now."

vinous logo 250"Bright onion skin color. High-pitched strawberry and tangerine aromas are complemented by a suave floral overtone. Dry and racy on the palate, offering bitter cherry and orange zest flavors and a touch of musky rhubarb. Closes tight and a bit warm, with good cling and building spiciness." - Josh Raynolds

I Wine Review"Pinotage rosé is pale pink salmon in color with a nose of minerals and a light red cherry scent. It's refreshing and very dry with bright acidity and lingering cherry notes. Well done and an outstanding bargain!"
