A rosé style barrel fermented blend of Mourvedré, Shiraz and Trincadeira
Malgas. Very light red colour with a russet hue. (Like a dark rose’ or light Pinot Noir)Beguiling savoury nose with complex red berry flavours, with forest floor and flint aspects. Palate light and soft on texture, but loaded with complex barrel fermented flavours and a long grainy, refreshingly dry finish. Versatile food wine. Excellent with light curry dishes, especially fish, chicken or vegetable with moderate heat / spice. Serve slightly chilled (between a red and white wine temperature).
Saignée, is bleeding in French. The excess juice is drained off and Charla turns it into this stunning wine. The aromas are all of red berries, petrichor and flinty minerals. The flavours are delicate, soft and packed with flavour from the barrel fermentation. The ending is textural, long and wonderfully dry.
