Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut Rosé 2007

by Nannette Eaton on February 9, 2010

“We came by night to the Fortunate Isles, And lay like fish Under the net of our kisses.”  — Pablo Neruda

The color on the Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut Rosé is stunning salmon-rose, like a sunset on the Cape.  The wine is well integrated, with pin-point bubbles, with a citrus notes with minerality and toasty finish.  A really elegant wine.  The perfect pairing would be Poached Salmon.

The details:  12.4% alcohol.  The grapes are 90% pinotage and 10% pinot noir from Stellenbosch, South Africa.  The suggested retail is $30 USD.  The importer is Quintessential Wines.  This was a media sample generously provided by Quintessential.

The music match “Kissing a Fool” by George Michael from the album Faith.
