MENU's Wine of the Week. Raka Rosé 2017

Raka on the Stanford wine route makes a very good Rosé wine from Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc. It is summer in a bottle, with notes of rhubarb and roses with some strawberry on the nose. Almost a light red wine on the palate, with raspberries and rhubarb, it reminds Lynne of Tavel Rosé from the Southern Rhône valley, and that is a compliment
14% alcohol and only R45 a bottle on the farm, we will be drinking this with all sorts of food as it is so versatile. We had it last night with a spicy sausage Paella
