Van Loveren Perle le de Jean Pinot Grigio Rosé
Rosé has been described as “romance in a bottle”. Versatile and elegant, this popular wine style has been gaining ground all over the world among both male and female oenophiles, and this has led to a whole plethora of varieties being used to produce it.
The latest variety to join this wine style in South Africa is Pinot Grigio, and Van Loveren Wine Family Vineyards in the Robertson Valley decided to dedicate South Africa’s first Perlé-styled Pinot Grigio Rosé to the late Retief matriarch, Jean, who was well-known for her love of gardening and the lush garden she, with husband Hennie, established at the estate, starting in 1939. This passion is reflected in the label design of the Perlé de Jean Pinot Grigio 2018.
Fresh notes of raspberries, strawberries, fresh red currant, ripe citrus and melon, with a subtle undertone of lemon.
