This month's tasting room boxes contain the following:

OUR LATEST RELEASE: Reserve Classic Cuvee 2016

OUR LATEST RELEASE: Reserve Classic Cuvee 2016

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.

New Release: Reserve Jubileum 2015

New Release: Reserve Jubileum 2015

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.

French Wines available now!

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.

We're excited to announce the release of our renowned Rosendal Merlot 2017, available now via our call center; and online from next week.

A bouquet of fragrant black cherry, dried herbs and cinnamon spice attracts the nose and prepares the palate for a fruit laden entry of plush plums and brooding mulberry deliciousness. The wine is medium-bodied with juicy tannins and a soft dry finish.
