Napier Petite Marie Grenache Rose 2018
A delicious full-flavoured Grenache rose, a perfect foil for Tapas.
This is a ripe and full flavoured rose, from Grenache grapes. There are strawberry and raspberry aromas, and the palate is jam packed with red berry fruit. Enjoy while young and vibrant. Try with Tapas and cajun dishes.
Napier is a new shooting star on South Africa’s dynamic wine scene. Set against the dramatic backdrop of the Hawequas Mountains, this boutique, family-owned winery has 88 hectares in Wellington, just 70 km to the north-east of Cape Town, and offers a counterpoint to the more well-known areas of Stellenbosch and Paarl. Mountain water and snow melt supplies Napier’s own bore for precision-planned drip irrigation to manage development of each individual varietal, vineyard block and quality level. All work in the vineyards is concentrated on achieving varietal typicité and perfect balance, from the Lion Creek wines for everyday drinking through to Napier’s multiple award-winning icon wine, Red Medallion. Napier Single Vineyard wines are varietals originating from our best single vineyard sites, carefully selected with passion and care by winemaker Leon Bester
