Bosman ‘Generation 8’ Rosé 2020

Bosman ‘Generation 8’ Rosé 2020


Harvested with the sole intent to produce a Rosé. The Cinsaut is hand harvested and then vinified to the desired modest alcohol level and fresh, lively acidity. Limited skin contact results in the rosy hue. After pressing the grapes, the wine is treated as a white wine to secure as much of the freshness as possible.

Tasting Notes

Rosy pink. Hint of strawberries and fresh spring flowers. Notes of wild strawberries and cranberries with a fresh finish. The Cinsault is evident in the structure and texture. The Rosé is a wine with fantastic culinary appeal.

Special Notes

Cinsaut is a fairly dark-skinned grape variety traditionally used as a blending partner for Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre as part of the classic Southern Rhone blend. In recent years we have seen a revolution in the use of Cinsaut in the use of varietal wine in South Africa, but it has well been known to be a fantastic base for rose, in which it expresses itself as a light, aromatic and refreshing wine.

These grapes are sourced from our vineyards in Wellington. The site of our Cinsaut vineyard lies 15km north of the village and stretches over shale terraces towards the Swartland’s rolling hills and wheat fields, with predominantly schist soils. It lies in the Mid-Berg River ward of Wellington. The farm draws water from the Berg River and the landscape is fairly homogenous with little variance in altitude.
