Cederberg Sustainable Rose 2015

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!
