Noble Hill Mourvèdre Rosé 2019

Focused, crisp and dry, this rosé is the perfect accompaniment to summertime.

Light salmon pink colour. The bouquet elicits aromas of rose water, strawberries, watermelon, candy floss and blackcurrant. Watermelon, lime and grapefruit citrus, and a hint of delightful zesty lychee notes linger on the tongue. Balanced with a good acidity and crisp, dry finish.

Since the Mourvèdre (moor-vey-druh) grape is originally from the warm shores of the Mediterranean, it is heat-resistant and grows vigorously in the South African climate. Traditionally used for the production of high quality rosé wines in Provence, Noble Hill used their estate vineyard to try experimenting with the grape for themselves. Noble Hill’s small vineyard of less than one hectare is pruned to retain a large number of growth positions. This reduces the vines’ vegetative vigour and yields a balance between growth and fruiting.

The grapes are carefully selected and arrive in excellent condition at the winery. The grapes go through crushing and are left in the press, in contact with the skins, for 1–1.5 hours. This skin contact gives the wine its salmon and onion-skin colouration. The wine is fermented naturally in stainless steel tanks and bottled with minimal intervention.
