Retief 2008 Rosé
Winery/Brand: Retief Wines
Colour: Vibrant, clear bright pink. Very fresh and light.
Bouquet: Lots of fresh strawberries with a hint of cherries.
Palate: A beautifully balanced wine on the palate with excellent structure. There are loads of delicious fresh summer berries on the middle palate and a clean crisp finish from natural grape acids.
A very refreshing wine, perfect for a hot summer day!
Once the fruit is harvested and crushed into the fermentation tank, the colour of the juice is closely monitored. In this case 24-48 hours of 'skin contact' was given before the juice was bled off and fermented separately, at a temperature of 13-16°C. Minimal use of sulphur has been used to ensure both preservation of the wine and enjoyment after drinking!
