KC Rose 2016

KC Rose 2016

Careful attention was paid to the level of fruit ripeness at harvest. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed, yielding lightly coloured hues and fresh acidity. The juice was settled and then fermented in stainless steel tanks. Minimal ageing on lees preceded stabilisation and bottling preparation.

Made in a Blanc de Noir style with minimal skin contact to allow for the perfect colour as well as light delicate flavours. Grapes are selected from cool climate vineyards from Constantia and Stellenbosch.

Tasting Notes

Bright and onion skin in appearance with aromas of citrus and berries. The palate is full and lively displaying a balanced acidity and a creamy texture. Full bodied, the wine finishes with a long berry bursting finish.

Maturation

Drink now or up to three years.
