Leopards Leap Lookout Pinotage Rose 2013

Wine Style: A crisp, medium-bodied wine that is elegantly dry and sophisticated.
Nose: Purple, hints of Pinotage followed by pomegranate, raspberry and pink marshmallow aromas.
Palate: The vibrant colour of this wine comes to life on the palate with the prominent taste of raspberry sherbet. Leaving a lingering freshness on the palate.

The lively, yet elegant nature of this Rosé makes it a wonderful companion to fish dishes such as Kingklip with lemon butter. This winter this wine will perform excellent with a light lamb and pomegranate soup. Pleasantly paired with lemon meringue as dessert.
