Cederberg Sustainable Rose 2012

Cederberg Sustainable Rose 2012

This Shiraz-based Rosé has an exotic coral pink appearance. It displays elegant aromas of strawberries, watermelon and cotton candy. It has a dry entry with balanced structure, but backed by its invigorating acidity it has a fresh clean finish. A great summer refresher.
