Klein Constania

KC Rose 2013

KC Rose 2013

A freshly styled light and crisp Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé with moderate alcohol for anytime drinking.

Careful attention was paid to the level of fruit ripeness at harvest. A just-ripe style of fruit was 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.

Tasting Notes

The colour is a unique faded salmon light blush that is typical of this blanc de noir styled Rosé. The nose presents fresh vibrant flavours with a rich creaminess followed by some citrus and orange blossom. The palate is crisp and dry displaying balanced acidity and a creamy texture.

Maturation

Up to 3 years from the date of harvest
