Backsberg Pinotage Rosé 2019

Backsberg Pinotage Rosé 2019

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. The perfect partner to Mediterranean platters of olives, cheese, charcuterie and French bread.
