LIMITED Reserve Jubileum 2016 has just been launched.
This new addition to Rosendal Wine has intensity which can be seen with the purple rim and black core displayed within your glass. The fragrance of blackberries, pink peppercorns, and rich granite are embodied by this classic blend. The palate is filled with the sweet and bold fruity flavour of brandied cherries which lead into the full-bodied ripe tannin structure of this Reserve. It is the ultimate collectors wine with only 1500 bottled of this vintage.
Only 4000 bottles produced of the Reserve Rhone Blend 2015.
Bright and inviting lashing crimson red, perfumed notes of spices and violets, makes for a perfect introduction with subtle whiffs of oak and white pepper contributing to the bouquet. On the palate juicy and decadent, mouthfuls of ripe red berry flavours that concludes with an unexpected twist towards the end, adding to the complexity of this wine. The firm tannins will ensure beautiful aging.
Our new Shiraz has a dark reddish-purple hue and displays characters typical to the wines found in the Rhone Valley in France. The nose is fragrant with crush pink peppercorns, clove spice and red berry aromas. Subtle hints of cedar and violets add to the complexity and the palate is savoury, but not meaty, with an unexpected sweet and tangy twist towards the end.
Barony Skaði Grenache Noir 2017 A vibrant ruby red hue makes for an inviting first impression. Fragrant whiffs of red cherries, cloves and strawberries meets plush red berries on the palate. Smooth layers of deliciousness guide the finish into a perfectly tapered tail. Serve slightly chilled during summer time.
So excited about this one! Upfront cassis and plums are supported by subtle oak nuances and a smooth but rounded mouth-feel.
The wine is extremely juicy with lashings of dusty chocolate and whiffs of moist Christmas cake on the nose. The palate is steeped in a melange of blackberries, orange rind and hints of dried mint combining a lovely warm earthiness with an abundance of fruit flavours. The tannins are smooth with a dry and delightfully spicy aftertaste.
This wine’s black core with purple rim is the first sign of its intensity. Fragrant pink pepper spice, wild blackberries and classic graphite are some of the flavours you will find in the perfumed bouquet. The palate is generous and lush with sweet bold fruit and brandied cherry nuances that lead to a full bodied palate and a grippy but ripe tannin structure.
Rosendal currently has a limited number of French wines available. The La Chenade Lalande-de-Pomerol 2015 moves towards red fruit on the nose, crushed strawberry and raspberry pastilles, candied and somehow joyful. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very fine in the mouth with a keen line of acidity.
The Barony Sophie 2016 is a rich, complex blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. It's a perfect winter wine and will be available via our call centre and our online store within the next two weeks.
