Protea Dry Rosé 2020

Western Cape, South AfricaThere are precious few serious, modern, pale, fresh and dry rosés coming out of RSA, and this is one of them, now prominently displaying DRY on the front label (at least in this market). Also new are the labels - stickers purposefully laid overtop the stunning etched bottle, so you can peel them off after drinking and reuse the bottle as you'd like. The '20 blend is mourvèdre, cinsault, grenache, carignan, and shiraz from Anthonij Rupert's farms throughout the Coastal Region. Pouring a moderate peach hue, this streams wild strawberries and raspberries, spring rhubarb along the brisk palate, threaded with lime peel and fine pink peppercorn spicing. As with all of their wines, there is an elegant air of sophistication here, and coupled with 2020 freshness, this is ideal for drinking now, copiously.Tasted: 30 January 2021Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 15.00 private wine stores Producer: Anthonij RupertDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
