Sustainable Rosé 2016

The Cederberg Rosé, made of single vineyard Shiraz on sandstone soil, shows elegant aromas of strawberries, watermelon and cotton candy. It has a dry entry with a creamy palate yet it has a crisp finish. This shiraz-based Rosé has an exotic coral pink appearance, a real summer refresher!
