Elmie, Rosé 2020 Bottle size: 750mlSouth Africa, Stellenbosch
Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'My rosé of the year is a first release from the talented Reg Holder. It's a wine that tastes as good as it looks: direct pressed and very pale, with the understated concentration of two dryland Pinotage vineyards, rosehip and water melon flavours and a long, refreshing finish. Drink 2019-21.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2019, 93/100 (Overall Rosé of the Year)
'In Provence style, from the pale onion-skin hue to the light, dry & delicate palate - though 2018 from pinotage certainly not lacking flavour. A little oak influence.' – Platter's Guide, 4*
