Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rose 2016

Bracing mineral aromatics and floral notes are found on the nose whilst the well-blanced and vibrant palate features freshly sliced watermelon, Turkish rose water and subtly herbaceous Cabernet Sauvignon flavors. amplifying its fresh, clean acidity and striking length is a burst of succulent ruby grapefruit that carries the wonderful ensemble to a pleasant, lasting finish.

ageing : 1-2 years from the date of vintage

in the vineyard : Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards are managed specifically with the idea of rosé production in mind.

about the harvest: Early picking dates result in naturally high levels of acidity and a bright spectrum of fruit aromas ideal in rosé style wines.

in the cellar : Once pressed, the juice is handled as per Sauvignon Blanc, i.e. cool fermentation with aromatic yeasts to heighten the vibrant, zesty aromas and fresh mineral palate. Crucial to this style of rosé is early bottling in order to preserve the wine’s inherent freshness.
