Freshness and subtlety. A clear and shiny robe, slightly salmon-coloured. A delicate nose of candied citrus fruit, spices. A full balanced mouth, fresh, underlined by a nice aromatic persistence and great finesse.
The grapes for False Bay Whole Bunch Cinsault Mourvedre stem from bush-vine Cinsault (mostly old vines) in Stellenbosch and The Swartland, along with a small proportion of Mourvedre from Stellenbosch which adds a savoury depth to the wine. Although The Swartland is not as coastal as most of the vineyards used for the False Bay wines, it is an area where, quite frankly, grapes from old vines are available at the required prices. Thankfully, the area`s old vines produce naturally low yields and retain good acidity despite being warmer and less windswept than Stellenbosch, so cooler, coastal Atlantic winds are less of a necessity for these gnarly old vines. Made by Waterkloof`s talented young Cellarmaster Nadia Barnard. Balanced grapes are hand harvested, whole-bunch pressed and fermented spontaneously with wild yeast in stainless steel and wooden foudre. The wine is left on lees for a minimum of three months before bottling. No additions other than sulphur as a preservative. Grown, made and bottled in South Africa.
Old bush vine Cinsault forms the backbone of this `proper` rosé. A pale, spicy and textural Rosé mostly sourced from bush-vine Cinsault with summer fruits on the palate and a lovely clean, savoury, dry finish.
Delicate and refreshing, this White Zinfandel is abundant in fruity aromas reminiscent of summer with sweet ripe raspberries and strawberries. In the mouth the red fruits mingle with melon and hints of orange zest and sweet spice.
We know - £18-odd for a rose from Lebanon sounds like a big ask but believe us, this is worth every penny. If this came from a winery in Provence (especially one with an Ott or a Whisper in its name) it would fetch a far higher price than this.
