Winemaking

The grapes varietals were handpicked at phenolical ripeness and stored at 10 °C to ensure volatile flavors are maintained and thus the finest flavor possible. The grapes are added to the press, maintaining a temperature of 10 °C and are left in contact with the skins for a period of 2-3 hours to give a beautiful light salmon pink color. The grapes are then pressed releasing maximum juice, and this is stored in a stainless steel container to allow for settling. The best juice is selected using a racking technique and is transferred to another stainless steel container where yeast is added and fermentation carried out over a period of 3 weeks at low temperatures. After fermentation the wine is bottled and is ready for purchase after one month.

Winemaker’s comments

A stunning pale salmon pink in color, this wine has intense floral aromas of rose petals, and peach flowers with fruity aromas of strawberries, grapefruit and a hint of litchi. The wine shows great structure with fresh acidity and lingering after taste. This wine is perfect to drink on its own as an aperitif or together with an al fresco luncheon

Food Pairing

This wine will work very well with light, summery flavours such as salads, fish and white meats. We recommend a chilled glass as an aperitif.
