Fleur du Cap has extended its off-dry selection with the release of the first blushing Natural Light Rosé – ideal for summer picnics. A partner to the ever popular Fleur du Cap Natural Light Chenin Blanc, this light hearted Rosé combines the freshness of a low alcohol Chenin Blanc with just a hint of Pinotage.
With an alcohol level of 9,7%, Fleur du Cap Natural Light Rosé 2015 is a palate friendly wine, ideal for enjoying with family and friends.Its off-dry style makes the Natural Light Rosé perfect for effortless pairing with salads and light pastas. And with its easy to use screw cap, bliss is just a twist away.
Made predominantly of Chenin Blanc grapes, this Rosé has subtle notes of pear and pineapple, with just enough acidity to add a burst of freshness. The dash of Pinotage, just 5%, lends a hint of red berry fruit.
It is the Rosé’s great versatility that stands out for assistant winemaker Elmarie Botes, a member of the Fleur du Cap winemaking team who helped to craft the wine: “The freshness and acidity of a white wine combined with the structure of a red makes it so versatile.”
The wine’s pale pink, light salmon hue adds the ultimate finishing touch, whether you are socialising at home with friends, going out for lunch or hitting the night lights, with the added benefit of allowing you to enjoy yourself just a little longer.
“Its off-dry style and lower alcohol content are a sure way for wine lovers to keep the waistline looking summer slim all year round,” says Elmarie, who considers the wine a good companion with friends or just to enjoy while watching TV or reading a book.
“There are few things in life that are as sweet as enjoying good company with a few glasses of Natural Light Rosé. It’s like a touch of spring and a great reminder for what’s to come – summer picnics, swimming and sunshine”, adds Elmarie, who began her career in winemaking as a Cape Winemakers Guild Protégé before joining Fleur du Cap in 2013.
The new Fleur du Cap Natural Light Rosé 2015 is available at leading outlets country- wide and sells at the cellar door at Die Bergkelder in Stellenbosch at R44.00 per bottle.
