Delheim 2015 Pinotage Rosé
Delheim Estate, pioneer of South Africa’s first Pinotage Rosé since 1976, has released the latest 2015 vintage of its internationally famed, off-dry rosé which vibrantly expresses a true Stellenbosch identity.
Over the years the Delheim Pinotage Rosé has developed a loyal following, with both experienced wine experts as well as just occasional wine drinkers liking its fresh, fruit-forward yet balanced style. In the past decade, this pink wine has been recognised thrice as the Top Rosé in the German market by the prestigious Weinwirtschaft magazine.
Bursting with fruit, its widely popular profile of strawberry and cranberry, enhanced with floral aromas on the nose and palate, makes its return in the 2015 vintage. A splash of Muscat de Frontignan (4%) was added to balance acidity and sugar, whilst contributing juicy fruit. Radiant with its candy floss blush, the lively Delheim Pinotage Rosé 2015 has a spot-on balance of red berry sweetness and crisp acidity which leads to a refreshing finish. This versatile pink wine pairs well with sweet desserts, savoury pastries, light meats and slightly spicy, aromatic cuisine such as mild curries and Thai dishes. It also balances the richness of creamy salads.
This accessible, unashamed star of the Delheim cellar is perfect on its own for on-the-spot exuberance, to pack with your picnic, to break the ice at parties or for al fresco entertainment. At a recommended retail price of R57, the quality over-delivers for its versatility, character and value.
