In the vines Because the Mourvèdre (moor-vey-druh) grape is originally from the warm shores of the Mediterranean, it is heat-resistant and grows vigorously in our climate. Our small vineyard of less than one hectare is pruned to retain a large number of growth positions. This reduces the vines vegetative vigour and yields a balance between growth and fruiting. The 2018 growing season was notable for its dryness and moderate temperatures. Slow, even ripening led to good colouring of the berries and a moderate yield. The rosé fruit arrived in excellent condition at the winery. The wine Mourvèdre has traditionally been used for the production of high quality rosé wines in Provence. It was therefore a natural step to use our estate vineyard and try it for ourselves. We have always enjoyed adding a bit of Mourvèdre to our Syrah for its spicy & earthy flavours. This rosé stands out with a light salmon pink colour and a bit of orange peel on the rim. The wine elicits aromas of rose water, strawberries, watermelon, and black currant. It has a crisp, dry finish and is perfect alongside the braai. Serve chilled, at 7-9°C.
