Delheim Pinotage Rose 2002

Salmon-pink colour. A deliciously harmonious wine with sugar and acidity in perfect balance. Crisp and refreshing on finish. Elegant nose with soft plum and strawberry fruit notes and floral touches. Very charming, versatile wine. Enjoy with salads, picnic style light lunches, light pates, cold meats or on its own.
