Wild House is a place of raw energy, a weather-beaten hut exposed to the storm-swept slopes of the mountains where this wine was conceived. It is made by JD Rossouw, a man destined to be a winemaker even before he was born. Whilst pregnant, his mother helped with pressings and punch downs in their family winery, enriching JDs formative senses with winery life. His earliest memories are of the “floral aromas in the winery while the fermentations were happening”. JD always wanted to be a winemaker and it all came so naturally whilst helping his father in their Paarl winery and studying winemaking at Stellenbosch University.
This Rosé is a naturally-fermented expression of Grenache Noir’s bright, succulent fruit and tangy palate, from vines crafted by time and carved by the winds. It is a delicate pale Rosé with an attractive coppery hue. There's lemony citrus, red currant and cranberry fruits on the nose. The ripe, textural palate has youthful strawberry fruit which is balanced by crispness and acidity and gently creaminess on the fresh, clean finish.
Dangerously easy to drink chilled on it's own or lovely paired with simply grilled fish or chicken.
