MENU’s Wine of the Week. KWV Roodeberg 2018 Rosé

It is made from Shiraz and Cabernet with a little Cinsault and Mourvedre added. It is made from free run juice and has brief skin contact, but not very much, as they need to keep the colour light pink. It is refreshing and is full of strawberry, raspberry and litchi notes on the nose and palate, with good fruit acidity
Lovely to just quaff, but a good food wine as well, especially for summer dishes. The alcohol is a low 12.5% and it retails for R85 a bottle. It was first made in 2014 and was launched into the international market where they sell 90% of the 100 000 litres they produce. Now they are introducing it into the local market to grow the volumes. More and more of us, men and women, are enthusiastic about drinking good dry rosé wines. Available in supermarkets and wine outlets
