Kloovenburg Shiraz Rose 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Pieter Du Toit's Kloovenburg estate is definitely off the beaten track, hidden away on the Kasteel Mountain, to the northeast of Cape Town. Pieter is the walking definition of a perfectionist as shown by the fact that he had a new vineyard dug up and replanted to make sure that the rows were straight! Both viticulture and winemaking are done very much by hand with a healthy suspicion of new fangledism clearly evident around the estate. Having started out making Shiraz, Pieter now also makes superb examples of Merlot, Chardonnay and Cabernet, all of which thrive among the olive trees which Pieter's wife Annalene uses to make one of South Africa's finest olive oils. Made from Shiraz grapes, this rose wine intrigues and charms with a delightful bouquet of red berries and interesting nuances of sweet spice; fresh and dry, the palate follows through with ripe cherries delicately balanced by a crisp acid. Perfect for those lazy summer afternoons!
