Welmoed Rosé 2018

The vineyards

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 winemaking

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.

Winemaker’s comments

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.
