We love this Rosé wine to celebrate spring
Anthonij Rupert Wyne’s Jean Roi Cap Provincial Rosé 2016 is premium Provençal style rosé that pays homage to Jean Roi, the French Huguenot from Provence who pioneered the L’Ormarins Wine Estate’s 300-year-old viticultural history. A blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Shiraz, this wine takes its cue the international summer drinking styles, in particular in the United States … a trend which is gaining ground globally amongst enthusiasts of fine wines. We adore the bespoke, regal style bottle embossed with Jean Roi’s initials, as well as the pale copper pink blush colour. With aromas of peach blossom and honeydew melon, it perfectly fits the description of “summer in a glass”. All melon, peach and nectarine, this wine is lovely on its own, but also partners beautifully with a delicious nectarine Caprese salad; grilled prawns and crayfish; or seared duck breast served with a raspberry jus.
It’s a limited release, available directly the Anthonij Rupert Wyne online store, or select specialist wine stores, for around R300 a bottle.
