Steenberg’s new rose petal pink Ruby Rosé has hit the high notes scooping Double Gold at Rosé Rocks 2017, South Africa’s only dedicated rosé wine competition.
A fabulous burst of spring, Steenberg Ruby Rosé 2017 is invigoratingly dry, light and flirty – pure delight for summer, Fridays and all happy occasions in between.
This striking blend of Syrah(51%) and Cinsault(49%) teems with whiffs of watermelon sorbet, toffee apple and red licorice candy. Crisp yet full and creamy with a mouthful of juicy raspberries, wild strawberries and hints of spice, this dry, fruit-forward Rosé has lovely depth and refreshes with a zesty citrus finish.
Strutting her stuff with a beautiful rose gold capsule and delicate filigree trim, Steenberg Ruby Rosé is on trend for the upcoming summer season. You’ll want to be seen with her at picnics, light lunches and sundowners, so be sure to keep a bottle or two in the fridge.
The Steenberg Ruby Rosé 2017 sells for R86 at the cellar door and can be found at wine shops country-wide. For more information visit www.steenbergfarm.com or join the conversation on Twitter @SteenbergWines and Facebook at facebook.com/steenbergestate.
