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.

As a reviewer before me noted, I am also a mostly-red wine drinker. I have not had a lot of luck with roses, and this one came as a wine.com club selection. Usually I find roses to be too tart and watery, this one was full of flavor, mildly sweet and even held up with ice cubes in it (I know, but I couldn't wait for it to chill down to drink the first glass!). High alcohol, but flavorful and fruity nonetheless. I am hosting a wedding shower for a friend, and will be serving this wine as a refreshment for the guests!

I am a huge red wine fan, and very seldom do I buy or drink whites. When summer came this year, I thought a few whites would be good to add to my collection. The first one came this weekend, and was pleasantly shocked to see it was a rose. I was eager to try it and was happy after I did. It's very fruit forward with great summer flavors. A nice dry wine that's not sicky sweet but fresh and crisp. Must be kept very very cold for best flavor. High alcohol content, so be prepared for a "kick". I dropped a few frozen berries in it for some extra chill and flavor. Great wine to enjoy at the adult picnic or late night on the deck! Will be ordering a few more bottles for the summer!

This is only the second S. African wine I have tried: both were good. This one is a great blend of several grapes I like, plus the syrah. When first opened, it needs a minute or so to breathe a little, and needs something with a little spice to go with it to really reach its potential. It's a little high in alcohol, so to drink it by itself, you need to get past the first glass, then the second can really be good.

A very hearty rose; almost a red. Fresh nose and full but not overpowering flavor.

Learn About South Africa

South Africa A long history of growing grapes and making wine, but less of a history on exporting it, and even lesser on the quality aspect. At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
