Notes

100% Pinotage

This is a collaboration between winemaker Reg Holder (ex-Delheim) and Etienne Terblanche. Ettiene, the new viticultural wunderkind from Thistle and Weed, also consults for Alheit Vineyards and Oldenburg amongst others. Pinotage has always been very successful as a rosé as it is early-ripening and expressive with lovely floral, musk and tart strawberry notes. The inspiration here is Provence and they have done a great job! Pale in colour, pretty on he nose and dry and fresh to finish.

'A distinctively elegant rendition of our native Pinotage grape. Celebrating life, love and friendship with Elmie, the zesty character who changed our lives forever.' – Reg Holder & Etienne Terblanche, winemakers

Tasting notes:
'My rosé of the year is a first release from the talented Reg Holder. It's a wine that tastes as good as it looks: direct pressed and very pale, with the understated concentration of two dryland Pinotage vineyards, rosehip and water melon flavours and a long, refreshing finish. 2019-21.' – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019, 93/100
