Rainbow's End Wild Ferment Rose

This is Anton's brand new Rose - please excuse the photo it isn't entirely accurate. This wine is a beautiful pale copper in colour, very similar in appearance and style to good Cotes du Provence - it is beautiful! Very low in sulphites too.

On our recent trip to the Cape Anton had invited us up for a braai on the Sunday. We had the daughter and her friend with us. Anton's partner is a well known food blogger and chef in SA known as "the kitchen vixen" so we knew we were in for a treat. Anton, being a South African man, was in charge of the meat of course and the Kitchen Vixen rustled up some stunning starters and side dishes.

It was a hot day so naturally I was looking forward to a glass or two of Anton's Chenin Blanc which is one of my very favourite white wines. However he produced this new Rose which I hadn't even heard about, and it was superb. Great flavour, very natural and fresh in style. I stayed on it while the girls all had the Chenin, and we whiled away a few hours on the stoop with the occassional dip in the pool to cool down. Naturally I had to have some Family Reserve (2013) Red Blend with the braai, and that was just sensational too. But I was very impressed with this Rose. It's rare to find one so delicious, fresh and low in additives, so I heartily recommend you try it. In my opinion it is worth more than £8.99 but we want to pass on Anton's good price and get it out to our customers for this summer.
