Diemersdal Wine Estate
About the Winery
Six Generations, One Passion
Six generations of Louws have practiced the art of winemaking at Diemersdal since the Estate passed into their hands in 1885. More than 12 decades later, Diemersdal is a well-known landmark in the lush Durbanville Valley, one of the Cape’s oldest wine regions.
Diemersdal forms part of the Wine of Origin Cape Town where cooling mists from the Atlantic Ocean roll over the vineyards every afternoon, contributing to the unique character of Diemersdal wines.
Diemersdal Sauvignon Rosé 2020
About the wine
This wine represents the meeting of the parent and the sibling, namely Sauvignon Blanc, which is one of the two varieties from which Cabernet Sauvignon was created. A combination of 93% Sauvignon Blanc and 7% fresh Cabernet Sauvignon, this unique rosé wine combines firm berry-fruit with a brisk freshness.
Delicate, fruity and lively, with distinctive Sauvignon Blanc aromas of passion fruit and lime, alongside hints of the cherry and strawberry flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon. A balanced palate with crisp acidity and fruity undertones.
The wine was vinified separately during the 2019 vintage. Traditional reductive Sauvignon Blanc winemaking. Three weeks before bottling, 7% fresh Cabernet Sauvignon was added to the Sauvignon Blanc until the perfect rosy coral colour was matched.
Post Fermentation lees contact for 4 month, stirred up once a week to enhance mouth feel and concentration. Blended 3 weeks before bottling and stabilization.
