The Yellowwood Organic Rosé 2021

"Making organic wines is in keeping with Spier's ethically-, environmentally- and socially conscious farming philosophy in which we harness the goodness of nature in ways that are kind to the earth."


FRANS K. SMIT

This refreshing rosé means you can do your bit for the earth without compromising on quality or fun. Made with Shiraz grapes grown organically at Spier without pesticides or artificial fertiliser, it offers a heady mix of berries, rosewater and vanilla flavours. 

TASTING NOTE
Fresh strawberry and raspberry aromas are supported by citrus blossom & candy floss notes. The palate is strawberry dominant with subtle notes of vanilla, complemented by a refreshing acidity.

VINEYARD AND CLIMATE CONDITIONS
Organically grown grapes from Stellenbosch and Paarl. The differences in altitude, aspect, solar radiation and wind exposure result in significant mesoclimate differences. This, coupled with variations in soil, created this complex wine with its unique character and style.

WINEMAKING
The organically grown Shiraz grapes were hand harvested in the morning in 8kg lug boxes. The grapes were cooled at the cellar before hand-sorting. No skin contact was given, and a low-intervention approach was used throughout the winemaking process. The juice was fermented in stainless-steel tanks to retain fruit freshness. The wine spent 3 months on its gross lees to enhance its structure before bottling.
