This Rosé is dry in style with a beautiful transluscent crimson colour and a bouquet of fruit flavours dominated by white peach and honeysuckle, lifted by some citrus.
The palate immediately demands attention with its strong flavours of red apple, melon and flowers with its silky smooth texture and fine tannins. The notably soft acidity is achieved by carefully monitoring the ripening in the vineyard and choosing the picking time when all components are in balance. Hand harvested like all Johanneshof wines, it is an elegant wine with a lengthy finish.
