Winemaker’s Note:

Our Tara Rosé shows a brilliant light colour and a fresh bouquet of strawberry, red apple and candy floss. A carefully crafted wine using early harvested Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec grapes for our cool sea facing sites. The style is elegant and classy on a warm summer’s day. This soft, easy drinking but flavourful wine is ideally served chilled with alfresco fare or simply enjoyed in familiar company.

Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley,
