Description: A frothy romance of red roses. Joyful pink color, vivacious cascading bubbles and the full rich flavor of Pinot Noir combined with the elegance of Chardonnay and the uniqueness of Pinotage providing the color. Rich and creamy with a long finish.
Production: For our Tradition Rosé, slightly unripe healthy whole grapes are pressed very gently using a Champagne pressing program. Only the cuvee (best quality juice) is used in the blend. After blending yeast and sugar are added for a secondary fermentation in the bottle which takes about six weeks, producing CO².The sparkling wine is matured in contact with the lees for about 18 months. With age the wine softens in flavor, maintaining its sparkle, giving a fulfilling balance of age and fruit.
Food Combination: Festive dinners. Sea food, fish, vegetables.
