Silverthorn The Genie Rosé Brut MCC was made from the Shiraz grape varietal. Grapes were hand harvested in mid-February in the early hours of the morning at 19° Balling. The grapes were whole-bunch pressed with a very low recovery rate of only 550 litres per ton - this ensures that no bitter tannins are extracted and leaves the juice with a beautiful light purple colour. The colour gradually evolves into a salmon pink. Fermentation took place in a stainless steel tank at 15°C. Secondary fermentation occurred in the bottle and the wine spent a minimum time of 15 months on the lees after which it was manually riddled and degorged. 13,900 bottles were produced. Bottled at 12%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Exotic bouquet of Turkish delight and rose water.

Palate: Fresh raspberries and sherbet flavours supported by a velvety texture and fine mousse.

Finish: A lengthy finish.
