De Wetshof Estate Lilya Dry Rosé 2021

De Wetshof Estate Lilya Dry Rosé 2021

Hues of onion-skin and salmon-pink are the result of a rosé made to the classic method of bleeding juice of red grapes shortly after crushing. The floral aroma leads to a freshness on the palate showing notes of red berries, stone-fruit and plums, with a lingering undertone of light spice and honeycomb.

2021 Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Awards - Gold

in the vineyard : The Robertson Valley is characterised by cold winters and sunny summers, with an average annual rainfall of 350 - 400mm. In summer a fresh southerly breeze has a cooling effect on the vineyards, allowing the grapes to ripen evenly and in perfect balance. Nights are chilly and during summer months a mist often shrouds the vineyards until late morning. The dry climate and bracing breeze keep pests to a minimum, resulting in sparse spraying programmes.
Age of the vines: 12 - 15
Vines per hectare: 4000 and some sections 4500

in the cellar : The grapes are handpicked in the coolness of morning, and the emphasis is on capturing the natural complexities of the grapes immediately for the making of this wine. Once de-stemming, and a gentle pressing and overnight settling without skin contact are complete, the juice is racked off the sediment and pumped into stainless steel tanks for alcohol fermentation.
