Cape Mentelle - Rose Wine
Cape Mentelle Rosé is a fresh, vibrant expression of the typical dry rosé style. It’s one of the favourites of the winemaking team as we are able to play with varieties not planted on our estate and of vineyards from different areas in the local region. We have fun with it; and that’s its true intent; fun and flavourful, enjoyed with friends.
Appearance: A brilliant light salmon pink
Nose: This wine seduces with red summer fruits of fresh strawberry, watermelon and rose petal overlain with hints of honeysuckle, cucumber and red apple skin. The nose is vivacious and lively, displaying lemon blossom and lime zest with a core of bright minerality
Palate: The palate characteristics burst forth with pink and red fruits; watermelon, raspberries and wild strawberries, with hints of cranberry. It has medium weight with a juicy yet creamy balance of red rose petal with a green lime zest finish. Hints of salinity and minerality highlight the maritime influence of the nearby ocean
