Delheim Pinotage Rosé 2003

International Wine & Spirit Competition 2004 - Silver
Veritas 2003 - Silver

Intense cape-ruby red colour. Concentrated strawberry flavours with floral tones on the nose. Wine is crisp with a refreshing finish. The first impression of fruit on the nose is also prominent on the palate. A very charming, versatile wine and part of Delheim’s award winning range since 1976. Enjoy with salads, picnic style light lunches, patés, cold meats or simply on its own.
