MENU's Wine of the Week. L'Avenir GlenRosé 2015

This sophisticated rosé, which we tasted at the Pinotage and Biltong festival really impressed us. From the first mouthful, you get perfumed raspberries and mulberries. It is seductively silky on the palate, the soft juiciness has a background of structural chalky tannin to support it and the wine develops in layers on the tongue 
It took us right to the South of France imagining what it might be like with a salad Nicoise or a rich fish soup. A food wine of note. 2015 is sold out, the new vintage is on the way soon. We also have to mention the special bottle which has the punt carved out to look like a protea
