Strandveld First Sighting Rosè 2018

Tart strawberry, red berries and delicate floral notes on the nose with a crisp, fresh palate featuring watermelon and pomegranate followed by a cool, dry finish. A refreshing wine to be enjoyed anytime with good friends and family.

Grape Varities: 74% Shiraz, 26% Grenache 

Alc. 12,5% vol. 

Residual Sugar: 3,4g/l

Total Acidity: 6,2g/l

Vinification:

Specially selected Grenache grapes were harvested first at 21.9°B and kept on the skins for 6-12 hours.

Only free run juice was cold fermented at 14°C in stainless steel tanks. A few weeks later the specially selected Shiraz grapes were harvested at 21.7°B and kept on the skins for 6-12 hours. Only free run juice was cold fermented at 14°C in stainless steel tanks.

Blending took place after fermentation. 

Age of Vins: 13 years

Vintage:

After a very long wet and cold winter, the spring of 2014 showed good promise. Our hopes for a decent yield were given a second blow by an unseasonal cold front in the middle of November. Gale force winds with icy rain caused damage in the middle of our flowering season. The rest of our summer season was dominated by dry East winds. The smaller crop and dry conditions further helped the earlier ripening of this harvest. Our harvest commenced on the 2nd of February, one week earlier than normal. Healthy grapes with smaller berries and less juice was the norm.

The summer months from November through to January were dry with the highest temperatures peaking at 29°C. The grapes were hand harvested at full ripeness between the 5th and 19th of March.

Wet gravel with an intense flintiness, combined with floral aromas. Full and creamy on the palate, with a combination of toasted oak flavours and a dry minerality on the aftertaste.

Alc. 12,75% vol. 

Residual Sugar: 1,8g/l

Total Acidity: 5,8g/l

Vinification:

Innovative wine making techniques – the Sauvignon Blanc component was cold fermented with selected yeast strains in stainless steel tanks. The Semillon was barrel fermented and matured for 10 months on the lees in 500 litre mostly older French oak barrels..

Age of Vins: 12 years 

Vintage:

Winter and Spring 2013 and the Summer of 2014 were the wettest on record since 1905 with a recorded total of 879 mm from 01 August 2013 - 31 July 2014. November was very wet with a high 150mm rainfall, December was very humid and January did not have the normal southeasterly winds but did have 100mm of rain. These conditions were not the typical Mediterranean climate normally experienced.

Fortunately our stony gravel soils drain quickly and February and March were dry and cool so our grapes were still healthy.

The resulting conditions produced fresh wines with a 1% lower than usual alcohol level.
