Woolworths Limited Release Pinot Noir Brut Rosé 2011.

The Woolworths Limited Release Pinot Noir Brut Rosé 2011 comprises 100% Pinot noir grapes which lend the faintest salmon hue and an enticing nose of rose petals, luscious strawberries and vibrant red fruit.  

“This limited release is as delicious as it is health-friendly and extreme care is taken in the whole winemaking process to prevent oxidation and spoilage of the wine as no Sulphur is added. It is a mouthful of freshness and finesse,” says Simonsig Cellar Master, Johan Malan.

He says the beauty of this noble red grape variety lies in its ability to add full-bodied structure to the wine without losing its delicacy and finesse. 

The Woolworths Limited Release Pinot Noir Brut Rosé 2011 comprises 100% Pinot noir grapes which lend the faintest salmon hue and an enticing nose of rose petals, luscious strawberries and vibrant red fruit.

The grapes where whole bunch pressed and then inoculated with a special Prise de Mousse yeast to start the primary fermentation. The yeast selection is critical as certain yeasts actually form sulphur dioxide in the wine which can be problematic when trying to make a sulphur-free wine. 

The Woolworths Limited Release Pinot Noir Brut Rosé 2011 spent nine months on the lees to develop its mouth-filling roundness and well-balanced character. It can partner exceptionally well with crayfish thermidor, rich Thai dishes or decadent desserts.

The wine retails at R89.95 a bottle at selected Woolworths stores countrywide.
