Raka Rosé 2014

Appearance: melon pink colour
Bouquet and Palate: The rose has a melon pink colour and shows  sweetish characters of candy floss and berry jam. On the palate the wine reveals to be completely dry with a spicy grip. It has a soft berry finish.

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

AWARDS
John Platter Wine Guide 2015 - 3 Stars
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.
