ageing : Tradition Rosé can age for at least 3 years from date of purchase. With age the wine softens in flavour, maintaining its sparkle, giving a fulfilling balance of age and fruit.

Tradition Rosé Brut followed Tradition in 1987 and it was the first bottle fermented Rosé produced in South Africa. It is now a leader in this category.

about the harvest: Slightly unripe healthy grapes are harvested early in the season by hand.

in the cellar : Whole bunches are deposited directly in the presses (pneumatic) and pressed very gently according to a Champagne pressing programme. Only the Cuvee (the best quality juice) is used in the blend. The colour is achieved by adding about 2 % of a specially prepared red wine made from Pinotage. After blending, yeast and sugar are added for a secondary fermentation in the bottle which takes 6 weeks producing the magical bubble. The sparkling wine is then matured in contact with the lees for an average of 18 months. After riddling and disgorging a small amount of dosage is added to balance.
