Three Sixty | Merlot Rosé 2020
R100 / 750ml
This is an easy-drinking wine which has a rich salmon colour with a slight pink hue. Aromas of strawberry, red cherry and candy floss compliments the nose of the wine. The palate is off-dry with a dominant sweet berry characteristic and a well-rounded acidity.
Grapes are hand-harvested from 15-year-old vines on the slopes of the Kanonberg mountains. The bunches are pressed whole and then left overnight with the enzyme. After removing from the lees, the juices are inoculated with selected yeast strains to begin fermentation in stainless steel tanks at 12°C. The wine is sparged daily to remove dissolved oxygen from the wine. The wine is then stabilised and bottled.
