Description

Tasting Notes

A wine with a delicate, beautiful salmon pink colour. Rose petals on the nose with fresh ripe strawberries on the palate – a long lingering fresh taste. A delicious lifestyle wine, elegant and soft.

 

Winemakers’ Notes

The grapes were crushed, separated from the skins, settled, racked and fermented the same as white wine. The wine was fermented cold, 12-14 degrees Celsius to retain fresh red fruit aromas. The delicate pink colour for the Rosé is derived from the red pigments that are released during the crushing process.

Zevenwacht is an historic estate in the Stellenbosch area producing distinctive wines with strong terroir-specific characteristics. Farming some 330 acres of vineyard, viticulturist and winemaker Hagen Viljoen is a technology leader in the Cape and works to maintain the revitalization of the estates reputation for producing outstanding wines that has occurred under the guidance of the Johnson family.

 

Food Suggestions

This wine is perfect on a spring day or over casual meals. Terrific for a salad or lunch time pizza with fresh toppings.
