unnamedRiebeek Cellars Pinotage Rosé 2018

Riebeek Cellars, in the enchanting little Swartland town of Riebeek Casteel, has for a number of years been producing some excellent wines, yet it flies below the radar. The Riebeek Cellars Pinotage Rosé 2018, may be a bit young, but it is so accessible already. The wine was recently crowned as one of the Pinotage Rosé winners at the Pinotage Association’s first competition specifically for Rosé wines made using South Africa’s most successful ‘indigenous’ variety. Do look out for the Sauvignon and the Chenin Blanc.

Looks like Bottled under screw cap in a Bordeaux bottle. Elegant label for a range of the wines. In the glass, a cherry blossom pink and gem bright.

Smells like Fresh sliced strawberries and chunky watermelon.

It tastes like Love the dryness. There is a generosity of sappy fruit, red berries and cherries. Crisp and fresh and fun from entry right through to the aftertaste which is very satisfying and thirst-quenching. Good as a glass on its own and delicious with this salad.
