Wine Review: This translucent and burnt red hued colored Sweet Blush opens with a ripe peach and honey bouquet. The medium body is juicy, jammy, and lively. The flavor profile is a sweet, sugary strawberry, melon, honey, and light lemon. This is a good summer quaffer served slightly chilled. I would recommend pairing this South African wine with a mixed fruit bowl and fresh whipped cream. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: With a nod to nostalgia and a taste that is different than the rest, Sweet Blush is lively with summer strawberry flavors and luscious hints of cotton candy, lemon and green melon. This easy-drinking but seriously well-made blush has an electric acidity and just the right amount of sweetness to sustain any season.
