De Grendel Rosé

About the wine

Trellised and bush vine Pinotage and Cabernet Sauvignon from Agter Paarl were purposefully
grown to produce our high-quality Rosé. With supplemented irrigation, the well-drained vineyards
planted in weathered shale soils, produced 12 tons per hectare.

An upfront bouquet of candy-floss and ripe, juicy strawberries greets the taster. Hints of sweet passion fruit and litchi combine with ruby grapefruit zest and fresh raspberries to deliver a slightly fuller mouth-feel and long aftertaste.

Winemaking process

Produced from 50% Pinotage, renowned for producing fine fruit-driven Rosé, and 50% Cabernet
Sauvignon, providing structure and acidity. Grapes were hand-picked between 20°B and 22.5°B
before destalking and crushing. One to two hours skin contact allows for a lighter style wine, followed by settling and racking prior to cold fermentation at 14°C.

Cellaring

This youthful and vibrant wine is best enjoyed early while still fresh and crisp.
