Ken Forrester Petit Rosé 2019

Description

This very elegant Rosé overwhelms the nose with aromas of freshly picked strawberries, rose petal and cherry flavours. It follows through on the palate with delicious ripe raspberries with a delicate finish.

Grape Varieties

Grenache/Viognier

Vineyard Region

Western Cape Soil: Sandy/Decomposed Granite Age of vines: 9 – 11 years Altitude:100m Aspect: East-West Facing

Harvest

The fruit is hand harvested as if to produce a white wine with high natural acidity, hence no added acid in the cellar. Yield: 9 – 10 tons per hectare

In the Cellar

Crushed and pressed, leaving the skins soaking for an hour or two. This infuses the delicate copper salmon colour unique for Grenache and a cold fermentation in stainless tanks ensures an elegant wine.

Food suggestions

Serve with all light summertime meals. Should last approx half an hour with the cap off and then reach for the next bottle!
