We planted 1 hectare of Mouvedre vines in 2001 on a slope of Red Karoo clay. Mouvedre grapes are of the most flavorful wine grapes to eat and we thought it would make a great Rose if we could capture those berry flavors in the wine. All the great Rose from Southern France and Spain are made from Mouvedre and suppose they cannot be wrong!”
During the ripening phase we taste the grapes weekly and wait for raspberry flavors to unfold in the grapes. This normally happens round about 22 Degrees balling . The Mouvedre grapes are harvested by hand and cooled down to 8 degrees Centigrade. After destalking and crushing the grapes, it only receives 40 minutes skin maceration without enzymes to keep the color as light as possible. Only the free run fraction is fermented cold . After fermentation the wine sis kept on its lees for one month and bottled.
