Kaapzicht Pinotage Rose 2016

Kaapzicht Pinotage Rose 2016

Light salmon pink in colour with buckets of strawberries bursting forth on the nose, accompanied by subtle undertones of rose petals and herbaceousness. Light and refreshing on the palate, with the wine showing good acidity which carries the flavours through and leaves you wanting more.
