Beyerskloof Pinotage Rosé Brut 2009

Bright reddish rose pink with all the seductive charm needed which resembles classic French rose champagne. Crisp, berry notes with floral perfume. Classic crushed apples, cinnamon, cherries and candyfloss throughout the experience. Dryer than the nose suggests with a refreshing tang; soft acidity underpins the crisp bubbles. A juicy aperitiff.
