Beyerskloof Pinotage Rosé 2012

Colour: Vibrant crimson pink core with elegant salmon pink and orange peel rim.

Bouquet: Abundance of sweet red cherries, candyfloss and strawberry aromas.

Tasting notes: Clean and crisp entrance, refreshingly dry with good acidity. The mid pallet is layered with sweet red berries and hints of buttery and creamy notes adding complexity to this serious and delightful Rosé. The drinker is left with a long lingering aftertaste of red cherries.

about the harvest: Good rainfalls and ideal cold weather conditions during winter ensured good nutrient storage and led to sufficient underground water levels for the growing season. The early growing season with moderate day time temperatures and cool evenings produced even buddin. Heatwaves in January put some strain on the vines, however very mild conditions for the rest of the ripening season esured ideal grape ripening conditions. This mild ripening season resulted in grapes from the 2012 season being picked at a stage of optimal ripeness, resulting in excellent colour and aroma extraction in the wines.
