Lindsay’s Whimsy Rosé 2013

R55.00

The wine shows slight wood aromas, but also lees contact and vanilla. The spice from Shiraz grapes leap out the glass and it makes this wine a superb food pairing to be be enjoyed with salads, fish dishes and even just because you feel like it!

Comments
Winemaker’s Comment A first for Shiraz Rose and it came out outstandingly well! The wine shows a bit of wood aromas, but also lees contact and vanilla. The spice from Shiraz grapes is leaping out the glass and it makes it a superb food wine that can be enjoyed with salads, fish dishes and even just because you felt like it!
