Wine Review: This pale coral colored Rose made from Pinotage opens with a wet stone bouquet with hints of tangerine and red cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, nicely balanced, round and fresh. The flavor profile is a tasty mineral influenced mild strawberry with hints of red raspberry, tangerine and faint blueberry towards the end. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would serve this crowd pleasing Rose slightly chilled with shrimp cocktail. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: In keeping with Kanonkop tradition, this enticing, dry rose is full-bodied. Pale pink in color, it is brimming with luscious berry aromas. Flavors of raspberry, strawberry and cherry emerge on a juicy, fresh palate that leads to a long, satisfying finish on this food friendly wine.
