Bellingham Rosé 2005

Colour: Attractive blushing pink with orange shimmers.
Nose: Deliciously forthcoming freshly crushed strawberry and ripe cherry aromas hints of candy floss and spice.

Vineyard Practice: The Pinotage grapes are sourced from vineyards selected for producing the quality grapes required for this style of Rosé. Yields are typically 8 - 10tons per hectare.

about the harvest: The grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness (23 - 25º Balling) to allow full flavour development and the desired sugar content.

in the cellar : The grapes are crushed and fermented on the skins for 8 hours to obtain desired colour and flavour extraction. The wine is then drawn off the skins and cold fermentation is continued until the desired sugar level is reached.
