Fish Hoek Pinotage Rose Swartland South Africa
Attractive pale pink with notes of strawberry, cherry and candyfloss on the nose and palate which is off-set by fresh acidity. Fish Hoek is based on the simple philosophy of one single grape variety and the relaxed lifestyle of Cape Town. Riebeek Cellars was founded in 1941 by descendants of the Huguenots who had originally settled in Franschoek. The cellar is a private co-operative with 1500 hectares under vine with 60% of fruit production graded as either premium or ultra premium. The winemaking for this Rose is overseen by Bruce Jack at Riebeek Cellars in Swartland. This cooler-climate region not far from Cape Town is 'up-and-coming' and home to many admired vineyards. Grapes were harvested early in the morning and left on the skins until enough colour and flavour was extracted. Cold fermentation helped retain the vibrant red fruit and was stopped once the perfect balance of acidity and sugar had been reached. Recently awarded the title of Wine Personality of the Year at the Financial Mail Wine Business Awards, Bruce Jack is one of South Africa's biggest movers and shakers making distinctive, stylish wines.
