Noble Hill
Mourvèdre Rose 2015, Simonsberg-Paarl

The Noble Hill Mourvèdre Rose began with a bold move six years ago in their vineyards. Because Mourvèdre grows well in hot climates, this made for very vigorous growth in the Noble Hill vineyards in South Africa. It was for this reason that estate decided to remove every other row of vines in the small vineyard block. This bold move paid off, giving the vines more space which allowed for a better balance between growth and fruiting. The Noble Hill Mourvèdre Rose has a salmon pink color with flavors ranging from rose water and strawberries to black currant. The crisp dry finish of this wine make it a great pairing for Braai (Afrikaans for "barbeque" or "grill").
