Benguela Cove "Backbone" Rose 2020 - Western Cape, South Africa
Varietals: Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc
This shiraz-driven rose was made with grapes picked at optimal ripeness. After being hand sorted and processed the juice was settled with just enough skin contact to produce a vibrant salmon blush color. Completely tank fermented, the wine was made with the utmost precision to preserve its natural aromas and freshness.
As one of Walker Bay's most prominent wine and lifestyle estates, Benguela Cove is the epitome of luxury living. The lush farmland was developed to create a vineyard, lifestyle estate and olive groves in 2003.
Benguela Cove is part of the Benguela Collection of properties, owned and operated by Zimbabwean born, British/South African Entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE and her family. Benguela Cove is the jewel in the crown of the collection. This unique maritime Walker Bay farm boasts one of the closest vineyards to the sea and the fresh Atlantic Ocean breezes help to produce exceptional fruits which our award-winning winemaker Johann Fourie and his team turn into fine estate wines. Benguela Cove is the largest producer in Walker Bay.
The estate features its own custom built 400 tonne winery with advanced technology to ensure total control of quality. Our winery equipment and fermenters have been innovatively designed to customise each grape cultivar, as we pursue the journey of treating each cultivar and vineyard with individual attention.
