Production

A Wildeberg wine begins life when we fall for a specific vineyard. The next step is simply expressing that place. In this case we fell upon a block of organically-farmed, dry-grown bush-vine Cinsault grown on the Agter-Paarl’s mineral seams. The fruit was picked at a ripeness optimal for this rosé’s natural acidity, in the cool of dawn and trucked up the road to Wildeberg. The fruit harvested just made a full single press, which was then gently squeezed to old French oak demi-muids for natural fermentation. The colour comes just from that light press and spends no further time on skins. The gourd-shaped bottle amplifies the shallot-skin hue of the wine and the individual printed wraps protect the wine from light-strike until opened.

Tasting notes

This rosé is a fine, lightly savoury wine with real depth.The older oak wraps this dry, mineral wine in a delicate creamy veil ultimately leaving a bright, structured and fine finish.

Food match

Drink chilled on its own or serve with fresh seafood, a quinoa and pomegranate salad or herb marinated grilled chicken tenders.
