False Bay Whole Bunch Cinsault Mourvèdre Rosé 2020
Whole Bunch Cinsault Mourvèdre is not cobbled together from off-cuts of leftover red and white wine. Nor is it over-cropped red grapes pressed aggressively to maximise juice yield and confected aromas. The wine comes from low-yielding, coastal vineyards, delicately whole-bunch basket pressed for only the purest juice. A fine wine that happens to be pink.
The False Bay Rosé is one of restraint and elegance, which can also be seen in the light salmon colour of the wine. The freshness on the nose derives from vibrant red berries and pomegranate, enhanced by soft floral notes. The Mourvèdre component brings structure and persistence to the palate. It is perfect on its own on a hot summer’s day, but also complements a tuna steak very well.
