Raka Rosé 2011

Appearance: Bright berry red colour
Bouquet and Palate: Fresh summer berries on the nose with hints of candy and an ellusive hint of oak. The crisp palate is supported by the acidity of the Sauvignon blanc ensuring a long, lingering aftertaste.

Served well chilled, this wine is well suited to any seafood, pasta, salads and cold meats. Also delightful on its own!

The wine was allowed to naturally clarify under gravity prior to filtering and bottling.
