Boschendal Classic The Rose Garden Rosé

Boschendal Classic The Rose Garden Rosé

Attractive soft pink with enticing crushed raspberry, ripe strawberry, red cherry and a floral hint of rose petal on the nose that carries through to a lively mouthful of summer berries finishing with juicy succulence. Well balanced with tremendous fruity friendliness although still fresh and dry.

The historic rose garden at Boschendal is a national treasure, housing one of the oldest collections of roses in the Cape.

in the vineyard : Grapes were sourced from a cross-section of regions selected for optimal expression of each variety. Vineyard tactics included pruning to two-bud spurs, shoot removal, bunch thinning and canopy management for best ripeness and quality.

about the harvest: Grapes were hand-harvested from mid-February to late March at an average ripeness of between 21 and 22°B.

in the cellar : To achieve the desired colour, most of the juice was drained directly after crushing, with some blocks receiving up to two hours of skin contact. Each variety was handled separately and fermented cold at 14°C to retain the delicate aromas and flavours. The final blending of varieties created complexity, consistency and balance before bottling.
