Raka Rosé 2012

Appearance: Bright berry red colour
Bouquet and Palate: The nose reveals a little white pepper but mostly ripe berries, strawberry sweets and red jelly, which is also to be found on the palate. The wine ends dry but full of fruit and the aftertaste lingers.

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

about the harvest: All grapes were hand picked.

in the cellar : All grapes were sorted before being crushed directly in to the tanks where skin contact is allowed for 4 hours. 6 - 15% of each variety were extracted and inoculated with pure yeast cultures to optimize fermentation at around 16° C. The wine was allowed to naturally clarify under gravity prior to filtering and bottling.
