Leeuwenkuil, Rosé 750ml 2019South Africa, Swartland
Enticing aromas of raspberry and pomegranate follow through onto the palate with additional flavours of ripe watermelon and a tangy cranberry finish. An engaging yet elegant wine with finesse. Enjoy right now or keep for up to four years.
'Our vineyards have predominantly sandy-loam topsoil with well-structured subsoil on weathered rock. This moderate to high clay percentage retains moisture and provide much-needed water during our hot, dry summers. The grapes were hand-picked and delivered to the cellar in small bins to prevent breakage of the berries. We whole bunch press the grapes, which reduce colour extraction because of limited juice to skin contact. The juice is allowed to ferment with own yeast to enhance mouthfeel, while retaining an elegant fruit balance.' – Leeuwenkuil
Harvest 2019 was moderate and vines were still recovered from the driest spell the Cape has seen for 111 years. The ‘hangover’ of the preceding drought was still very evident in the low yield and little stamina displayed by the vines.
