Carpe Diem Rose 2014
Grape variety: Rondo, Dornfelder, Reichensteiner, Kerner
Tasting notes: It gives fresh summer fruit and floral notes, aromas of raspberry and strawberry. There is the slightest hint of oak, which marries well with the fruit. Wonderfully juicy with a dry finish.
Food pairing: A racy acidity and delicate notes of pink grapefruit make this rosé a perfect companion with more structured dishes by bringing a cleansing freshness to your palate. We love to enjoy this wine with mackerel, salmon and light salads. Perfect for a summers day picnic! Serve at 10 degrees celsius.
Winemaker’s notes: Straight from our vineyards, the Rondo and Dornfelder were cold macerated for several days to carefully extract the vibrant colour and delicate fruit characters. The varietals were then fermented separately in stainless steel, with some of the wine spending a little time on oak to add fullness and complexity to the fruit. This blend was created to provide a refreshing and youthful rosé.
