This rosé is pale with a copper hue. The nose is attractive with aromas of grapefruit, red currant, watermelon, pomegranate and lime, with whiffs of pink peppercorn. The palate is round and smooth, yet structured with integrated acidity, showing flavours of dragon fruit, peach blossom, nectarine, honeydew melon, juicy plums and granadilla. The wine is precise and displays a perfect weight – a classic Rosé made in a traditional style. It lingers with a vibrant dry finish and notes of rose petal, fennel and anise.
The Porcupine Ridge Rosé is made from Cinsault with Syrah using the Saignee method for juice extraction prior to fermentation. Cold settling and fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Juice from mainly younger vines was used, offering a vibrant, fruity profile. We do not acidify any juice nor wine and believe that the fruit offered enough natural acidity to create a balanced, refreshing wine
