Avontuur Rosé 2020

Aroma: It is a fruit basket of aromas with watermelon and strawberry dominating as the wine opens up.

Flavour: The creamy palate is instantly attractive with a well-balanced crispness to the taste. A medium-bodied Rosé with complexity derived from the 3 cultivars used.

A versatile wine, perfect for lunch or a light supper with friends.

This is the first bottling of our New Style of Rosé at Avontuur Estate. We are delighted to present you with a “true” Rosé made from the juice of three specially selected Red grape varieties. The elegant and distinctive packaging remains the same.

in the vineyard : Lying at the foothills of Helderberg Mountain, Avontuur is blessed with well-drained Hutton and Clovelly soils. Planted on the west-facing slopes. Trellised on a 5-wire Perold system. Supplementary irrigation.

about the harvest: Grapes were harvested 17th January to 3rd of March at 22°B.

in the cellar : Pinotage juice was drained form the Roto tank and fermented separately. The Pinot Noir was harvested before the onset of full colour development in the vineyard and pressed after 3–5 hours of skin contact. Also fermented separately. A portion of Merlot grapes came in at 23 balling to add some fruity dimension.
