Fable, The Raptor Post Rosé 750ml 2017South Africa, Cape Coastal
Made in a Rhône rosé style and bone dry.
All the fruit is hand harvested and cooled overnight in the cold room. It's pressed the next day into a settling tank. The pressed juice must be allowed to settle for 24 hours before being racked, to remove heavy sediment, and then pumped to 500L oak barrels or concrete eggs. Natural fermentation is then allowed to take place and maturation lasts ±6 months. No new oak is used, only older, more neutral French oak barrels.
'Bright and prettily pale. Peppery and sour red fruits like rosehip. Tastes bone dry, mildly tannic, serious, fresh. Would be a good food wine, perhaps a little firm for drinking on its own?' – Jancis Robinson, 16/20
Alc 12.83% RS: 1.04 g/L TA: 5.33 g/L pH: 3.47
