Welmoed Rosé 2017
The grapes were selected from an assortment of Shiraz vineyards in the Stellenbosch region. The vines were grown in and a cool Mediterranean climate using a five-wire system within loamy clay soils.
The grapes were harvested at 22° Balling to preserve its primary fruit characters, fresh acidity and strawberry pink colour profile. Skin contact took place on the skins for approximately 2 to 4 hours, until desired colour was extracted. The juice was separated from the skins and completed its primary fermentation stage at 14° – 16° Celsius in stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wine was protein- and cold stabilised prior to bottling.
This vibrant pink rosé rains ripe strawberries, red apple and raspberries in its flirty characteristics. The palate indicates a stunning equilibrium between acidity and sweetness that deserves the crisp finish.
Ready to be enjoyed now with the potential to age for two years.
Excellent served on its own or with grilled fish, salads or light sandwiches.
