Backsberg Pinotage Rosé 2018

Backsberg Pinotage Rosé 2018

Red fruit flavours of cherry and strawberry give way to minty freshness gleaned from earlier picked fruit. Lightly tinted from red grape skins, this salmon hued wine is fruity and juicy on the palate. Low in tannins, it displays delightful notes of melon, ripe tropical fruit and strawberry.

Pair with seafood dishes and salads or enjoy with light lunches such as quiche and pastries. The perfect partner to Mediterranean platters of olives, cheese, charcuterie, and French bread.
