Benguela Cove ‘L.C.’ Rosé 2021

Benguela Cove ‘Lighthouse Collection’ Rosé 2021


This rosé champions Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc as signature grapes for this cool terroir and the vineyards were managed and farmed to preserve freshness and aromatics for the making of Rosé. All grapes are handpicked and whole bunch pressed to keep colour and tannin extraction to a minimum. Syrah grapes for Rosé production are picked earlier and then blended with a 30% Sauvignon Blanc component which ripens at the same time. Pressed together as whole bunches to limit the extraction of colour the blended juice undergoes a co-fermentation to prompt the desired layers of aroma. Ensuring further quality, only free-run juice was cold fermented with selected yeast strains.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful floral tones, with wonderful strawberry and cream cheesecake tastes. Perfume, cranberries up front with whiffs of watermelon and Asian spice. Even raspberry creeping through. Elegant and stylish with a full, fresh palate. It has an unrivaled smoothness and consistency from start to finish, with no peaks or troughs, but rather a consistent floral sweetness.

While fostering the essence of Provence-style rosé’s that is known for balance and class, it also captures that quintessential cool climate elegance and freshness. Syrah adds fullness and plush red fruit while Sauvignon Blanc adds tension, floral and stone fruit notes and frames the wine with a distinctive acidity.
