5 in stock
Roving Sommelier is passionate about premium quality regional South African wines. Journey’s End is a Gabb Family cellar cradled in the foothills of the Hottentot Mountains, overlooking stunning False Bay. Here lies a winelands paradise blessed with great views, a great climate and an abundance of indigenous bird and plant life.
The Wild Child Grenache originates from coastal vineyards resting on a sparsely populated, arid and wild terrain. Vines averaging more than 20 years old have been handpicked in the coolness of early morning. The carefully sorted fruit then crushed, enjoys three hours of skin contact followed by a controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks with a small portion fermented in 300 litre oak barrels for added complexity. This unique rosé was carefully crafted with an abundance of strawberry, luscious cherry, and raspberry flavours. The Wild Child also delivers subtle rose petal undertones and hints of peach with the touch of oak providing a balanced and rounded structure on the palate.
Best enjoyed chilled either on its own or with food, especially during the summer season with alfresco dining and in a convivial atmosphere.
