The second week of September and Spring in all her splendour has arrived. What could be more uplifting than watching the new growth appear in the vineyards and garden? And what could be more fitting than celebrating this season of joy and rejuvenation with a glass of crisp and fruity Rosé?
Yes, the 2020 Creation Rosé has just been released and it lives up to our wildest expectations. A delicate petticoat-pink, the wine is translucent and tempting in the glass, luring with the come-hither bouquet of a Madame Meilland rose and the freshness of sun-kissed berries. Profoundly chic yet playful on the palate: lush ripe raspberry laced with evocative hints of dried apple; racy white pepper flirting with the tiniest scoop of honey. All enlivened by the crisp acidity and savoury minerality characteristic of this cool-climate, maritime wine.
Beautifully aromatic with the delicacy and intensity of spring, our new Rosé comprises Grenache Noir and a dash of Viognier. The grapes were gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks to resemble the famous Provençal style of Rosé. It is refreshingly dry with a relatively low alcohol content of 12.5%. The complexity of the wine makes it an exceptionally versatile food partner: perfect with canapés but equally suited to be served with starters, mains and desserts. Our Culinary Team especially recommend their Beetroot Cured Salmon with Spring Onion and Strawberry Salsa. Click here for the recipe.
No doubt about it: Rosé is the ultimate spring and summer wine and our 2020 vintage has that certain je ne sais quoi that uplifts the spirit, putting the proverbial spring in your step! Order now by going to our convenient online shop in South Africa, the UK or Switzerland. Please note that this wine will only be available in the UK and Switzerland as from November 2020. If you live elsewhere in the world, please go to the Creation International Page to link up with our global agents.
