Summer’s in full swing, which brings with it long lazy days. Sunset gatherings, socialising with friends at a braai or around the pool, or simply taking advantage of the glorious weather. Summer is also synonymous with chilled white or rosé wines, and this is where the Middelvlei Rooster Rosé 2019 will help to make the most of this much loved season.
How Middelvlei Rooster Rosé is made…
Made from 100% Cinsaut grapes, the fruit was sourced from only the best vineyards in the Western Cape. According to winemaker Tinnie Momberg the conditions for the optimum growth and ripening of the grapes from September through to December, were perfect. This has resulted in a superb dry wine with delicate Summer berry and watermelon flavours. Tinnie describes the wine as a pale salmon pink colour with a delicious fruity finish.
Where can you buy it?
Available directly from the Tasting Room or select outlets nationwide at R95 per bottle, the Rooster Rosé 2019 is best served chilled. Enjoy on its own while taking in the breath-taking sunsets or pair with grilled seafood or chicken dishes. This wine also pairs perfectly with a black olive tapenade, or seasonal inspired salads such as a Niçoise. The Rooster Rosé can also be enjoyed with grilled lamb chops with herbs or lamb burgers with Moroccan spices or sweet and sour salmon teriyaki.
