Harvest & Vineyard

The Cinsault for this Rose comes from an old bush vine block planted on a farm in the Breedekloof called Orleans farmed by Kowie Stofberg. This special block we harvest from is the last remaining block of fruit Kowie’s father planted. We pick this fruit nice and early around 19.5 Brix to keep the wine fresh and spicy. The Semillon for this wine comes Bot River.

Winemaking

The grapes were chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed to a stainless steel tank the following morning. The press and free run juice are pressed to the same tank, the juice is allowed to settle out gently overnight. From here the juice was racked to big old french oak barrels where it was allowed to ferment naturally. Once the wine was dry it was stirred on the gross lees for 9 months without sulphur. Just before bottling it was racked, blended with the Semillon, sulphured up and protein stabilised. The wine was gently filtered before bottling.
