The Wolftrap Rose
Our Wine of the week for the 6th of July is a South African Rose from The Wolftrap. It is £7.99 from Carpanini’s Emporium.
The 2014 Rose is a gentle intriguing salmon colour, in sharp contrast to the bright pink of 2013.
The nose shows attractive red cherry and pomegranate fruit.
Juicy, earthy red berry fruit follows through onto a perfectly dry palate, which also shows a fleshy roundness and delicate hints of spice, yet with a fair amount of structure, grippy tannins and integrated natural acidity.
The wine ends clean and fresh with an attractive minty note.
Great complexity for a wine made in this style and a very versatile partner to everything from seafood to hot Thai dishes.
