Vineyards

Our 2015 Rosé was made from a carefully selected blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc grapes. The Sauvignon Blanc fruit is from the Skaap vineyards, a south-east facing slope high up on the Schapenberg, in the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. The Cabernet Franc was sourced from a Durbanville vineyard.  

Winemaking

The light, salmon pink colour of the wine was obtained from a very short period of skin contact with the Cabernet Franc, after which the skins were lightly pressed (we never use real press juice, it’s all free run). From there the wine is made in a similar way to the Skaap Sauvignon Blanc, slow cold fermentation with a combination of yeasts helping with the production of floral and fruit flavours. The wine is then carefully blended so that no single varietal takes over. 

Made by award winning South African winemaker Riaan Oosthuizen.
