Be the envy of friends this Summer when offering them simply the best the winelands has to offer. The Jean Roi Cap Provincial Rosé 2017 – a premium Provençal style Rosé from Anthonij Rupert Wyne – guaranteed to take your love for this style up a notch.
Paying homage to Jean Roi, the French Huguenot from Provence who pioneered the L’Ormarins Wine Estate’s 300-year-old viticultural history, the Jean Roi Cap Provincial Rosé 2017 is a blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Shiraz. This exceptional style of Rosé, which takes its cue from the international Summer drinking styles, particularly in the United States, has fast become a trend in South Africa amongst fine wine enthusiasts. Adding extra appeal to this particular wine is the custom-made regal style bottle embossed with Jean Roi’s initials, JR. And the trend doesn’t stop there. Gone are the days when it was only acceptable for women to enjoy a glass of Rosé. Rosé has a large following amongst the male drinkers, repositioning itself as the ideal unisex drink of enjoyment.
Besides the striking bottle, the wine possesses instant appeal with its pale copper pink blush colour which filters through to alluring aromas of peach blossom and honeydew melon. It perfectly fits the description of ‘Summer in a glass’. A fusion of fresh fruit flavours of melon, peach and nectarine makes its presence felt on the palate. The refreshing acidity perfectly balances out the fruit flavours, which adds an unexpected yet welcoming lemon zest twist to the mouthfeel. The Jean Roi Cap Provincial Rosé 2016 is perfect on its own but also partners beautifully with a delicious Summer nectarine Caprese salad; grilled prawns and crayfish; or seared duck breast served with a raspberry jus.
This limited release wine is available directly from Anthonij Rupert Wyne as well as specialist wine stores nationwide, and is available in the standard 750ml, as well as a 1,5 litre bottle. The larger size offering is perfect for the festive season when you treat your friends to this premium style of Rosé. The recommended retail prices are R290 for the 750ml and R600 for the 1,5 litre, which are available from select outlets nationwide.
