ZAND­VLIET SHIRAZ ROSÉ

Indwe - - Dinner & A Movie -

A new rosé has been un­veiled by Zand­vliet Wine Es­tate – the home of Shiraz in the famed Robert­son Val­ley of Roses. Within days of re­lease, the Zand­vliet Shiraz Rosé’s prove­nance was af­firmed with a Dou­ble Gold medal awarded at Rosé Rocks, the ded­i­cated cham­pi­onship for South African rosé wines. The grow­ing sea­son that pro­duced the grapes for this vin­tage was char­ac­terised by a mod­er­ate sum­mer with cool south-east­erly breezes, and low night tem­per­a­tures, fol­lowed by a cold win­ter. When har­vest came, the fruit was picked dur­ing the early morn­ing to en­sure it re­mained at its best. This mile­stone Zand­vliet Shiraz Rosé is golden pink in colour and dis­plays a dis­tinct bou­quet of rose petals, melon, straw­ber­ries and rasp­berry coulis. The palate is well rounded and re­fresh­ingly vi­brant, packed with red fruit flavours and a long, flo­ral fin­ish. It is best en­joyed chilled and pairs beau­ti­fully with seafood, light pas­tas, fish, and pork ten­der­loin. Zand­vliet Shiraz Rosé sells for around R85 a bot­tle from se­lect wine re­tail­ers coun­try­wide.
