PETIT VERDOT ROSÉ 2020 WO Stellenbosch
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer RUSTENBERG
This delicious 100% Stellenbosch Petit Verdot Rose never fails to thrill. The screwcap opens with a “pop” because it’s flushed with carbon dioxide to keep it fresh and lively. Bright light day-glo orange-tinged pink colour. Floral, honeyed, spicy, fresh, ripe, plummy-strawberry-apple nose. The taste is very slightly off dry, medium-light bodied, tangy, fresh, ripe, strawberry-plum-red-apple flavours with a lingering, bright finish. This versatile, well balanced, crowd-pleaser has 13.5% alcohol and 6 g/L residual sugar with lot number 00420 on the lower part of the glass bottle with a screwcap closure. An all occasion summer “must buy” rose! CSPC 451773

TASTING NOTE: A 100% Petit Verdot wine is a rarity, and even more so as a rosé. The grape's small, thick-skinned berries deliver the vibrant colour here and allow for the impressive depth of flavour, as well as the food-friendly texture and weight. This rosé features ripe red berry, black fruit, citrus, and a juicy character. Pair with grilled pizza. Price $ 14.95
