In the pink with Rosé



In the month of love, with pink and red all around us, rosé may be the most apt wine to drink. In a recent article about this wine on www.wine.co.za, Nikki Lordan says the following about Leopard's Leap's Rosé:

The Leopard’s Leap Lookout Rosé 2009, 100% Pinotage was a favourite amongst tasters as a very easy-drinking, fruit-bomb style wine with a dry, lingering finish.

Lordan further writes:

The one great thing about rosé is the vastly different styles that can be produced, which is all dependable on the grapes the winemakers choose to use. While Pinot noir, Mourvedre and Grenache are considered to produce more fruit variations, varieties such as Cabernet franc, Petit Verdot and Cinsaut result in far too tannic variations, leaving a slightly bitter taste on the back palate. Shiraz and Pinotage is by far the most popular variety to use for rosé wines in South Africa and produce mild styles that can swing to either side of the pendulum, depending on the level of extraction.
