L’Avenir Glenrosé 2015

Pink that doesn’t stink.

Most rosé is grape-based alcopop and doesn’t pretend to be anything else so I was intrigued when L’Avenir in Stellenbosch recently announced it was launching a version set to sell at R200 a bottle.

From Pinotage grown on gravelly Glenrosa soil, the wine is called Glenrosé and comes in a bespoke bottle with a protea-shaped punt and glass stopper.

Coral pink in colour, the nose shows aromas of red cherry and raspberry. The palate, meanwhile, is pure and focused with really bright acidity and a pithy finish. One of the most serious pinks around.

#WinemagRating: 88/100.
