screw cap wine


PRICE ON 9/1/2014: $8.99

Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 9% Syrah, 4% Mourvedre, 2% Pinotage

This thirst-quenching Cape blend Rosé exhibits juicy cherry, strawberry, and watermelon notes with hints of flowers and spice.

Not just for summer, this tasty Rosé is bold enough to stand up to heartier fare such as ribs, roast pork loin, and barbecued chicken.

My Notes:

About Brampton:

Launched in 1996, Rustenberg’s second label is named in honor of Brampton Beacon Bloomer, the farm’s champion Jersey bull who established a top quality dairy cow dynasty at Rustenberg. The Brampton range is all about mouth-filling, fruit-forward wines that are accessible, easy-to-drink, and sure to please. The brand regularly receives "Best Buy" and "Best Value" accolades in major wine publications such as Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast, and Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar.

Grapes for the Brampton wines are selected from the Rustenberg estate vineyards on the Simonsberg as well as from Nooitgedacht, proprietor Simon Barlow’s property high on the Helderberg slope, overlooking False Bay, where mountain ridges are cooled by gentle salt breezes. All of the Brampton wines are fermented in stainless steel. Each vineyard block is vinified separately, and the parcels are later blended to create supple, fruit-driven wines. The whites are aged in tank in order to preserve the fresh fruit flavors of the wines. After the initial fermentation is complete, the reds are run to small oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation of up to 15 months before bottling.

Each Brampton label is etched with a "B", playfully scrawled in vivid, varietal-specific colors. The range is packaged under user-friendly screw cap closures, ensuring fresh, juicy flavors and consistent quality. Perfect everyday wines and great for casual gatherings, Brampton offers tremendous value and sophisticated winemaking in every sip.
