Beyerskloof Pinotage Rosé 2011

Beyerskloof Pinotage Rosé 2011

Elegant, yet vibrant and inviting salmon pink colour. A medley of sweet red berries with an enticing whiff of candy floss on the nose. On the palate this wine has a soft entry with succulent, velvety strawberry and raspberry flavours. Balanced and very dry, more serious that one expects with typical Pinotage exuberance turned down. Delicious to sip when chilled which ads some additional length.
