Ideology Merlot Rosé 2018

Combining their skill and experience with unusual vineyard sites or varietals, our winemakers challenge convention to bring Ideology to life.



Intriguing, lively and sophisticated without being fussy: opening this rosé is like inviting George Clooney to brunch. Fresh berry and rose flavours and a mineral backbone means this suave showstopper will enhance any occasion. We particularly love it with fresh summer salads and our favourite friends around the table.

WINEMAKING

WINEMAKER

Jacques Erasmus

ORIGIN

Cape Agulhas appellation in the Cape South Coast..

TERROIR / SOIL

The farms geological formations are unique. The vineyards are planted in sandy, gravelly and highly weathered soils with a clay substructure. The vineyard has a view over the famous Walker Bay.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS

Trellised vines planted North-West and only 10km from the ocean. The cooling effect of the sea breezes in summer on the vineyards takes the edge off the heat, giving the berries a longer ripening period.

WINEMAKING

Only the most perfect bunches were hand-harvested early in the morning. At the cellar the grapes were carefully destemmed and gently crushed. Skin contact was allowed till the juice had the perfect salmon pink color. Only the free run juice drained off to settle overnight before inoculation with a selected yeast strain. The fermentation took place under controlled temperatures between 12° – 14 °C.

TASTING NOTE

Complex red berries, strawberries, rose petals with a mineral undertone. The palate offers great freshness and acidity.
