Douglas Green Pinotage Rosé 2009

Douglas Green Pinotage Rosé 2009

Pretty deep pink with feint orange shimmers. Exuberant crushed summer berries, glacé cherries. Turkish delight and a delicate spiciness that carries through to a surge of redolently ripe berry flavours finishing with delicious fruity intensity that is softly off dry and succulent.

On its own or with salmon, spicy chicken salads, paella, roast gammon or pork and sweet and sour dishes.
