Beautiful salmon pink colour the wine has upfront fruit of cranberry and blackcurrant with fresh ripe strawberries and nougat. The palate is juicy with succulent red fruit and fresh acidity. A delicious lifestyle wine, elegant and soft.

Terrific for a lunch time salad, pizza with friends or as the perfect picnic wine.
In The Vineyard
The Cabernet Sauvignon was from Zevenrivieren in the Banghoek valley and our Cabernet Franc grapes from Zevenwacht on the Polkadraai Hills.
About The Harvest
The grapes for our Rosé were picked at 21.5 degrees Brix
In The Cellar
The grapes were crushed, separated from the skins, settled, racked and fermented the same as white wine. The wine was fermented cold, 12-14 degrees Celsius to retain fresh red fruit aromas. The delicate pink colour for the Rose is derived from the red pigments that are released during the crushing process.
Zevenwacht Wine Estate, situated on the beautiful Stellenbosch Wine Route is a modern wine farm with a 300 year history. Owned and managed by the Johnson Family, the Estate has a strong commitment to historic and cultural preservation, as well as conservation of the surrounding indigenous environment. Two prime farming locations provide the grapes for the Zevenwacht winery. The home vineyard on the Estate’s panoramic 450 hectare maritime influenced property, supplies the majority of the grapes. The farm Zevenrivieren, situated at the crest of the Helshoogte Pass, provides winemaker, Hagen Viljoen, with a boutique selection of grapes that add to the fascinating variety of the wines.
