What an enchanting rosé of Mourvedre! The Waterkloof vineyards are managed with the highest viticultural standards in mind, and this rosé is a direct reflection of that care. The winemaking really begins in the vineyard, as the grapes are harvested at a high acid and low pH, and no sulfur is added. Only the wild yeasts of the vineyard are used in fermentation. Of the palest salmon hue, Mourvedre dazzles in rosé form, with aromas and flavors of delicate raspberry, violet and peony. The wine is aged for eight months on the lees, which lends serious complexity and length to the finish.
