"Rosso is bright light and fun, she has a tart savoury palate with fine generosity. A wine to love everyday and night. Drink it riding your bicycle on the way back from work, ciao!
Merlot (70%), Pinot Noir (15%) plus a blend of all of the lees from all varieties (15%). The Merlot is grown at the Magpie Springs farm in the Hope Valley. It has sand soil and is at the top of a hill near the ocean with strong ocean breezes sometimes. The vines are 25 years old and VSP trained and spur pruned. The Pinot Noir grown at Deanery in the heart of the Picadilly Valley, red clay over sandstone with an eastern facing aspect at the bottom of a cold deep valley. Fruit was carbonically fermented merlot covered with pinot for 10 days in a 2400L wooden barrel. The lees component is a collection of all of the lees from all of the wines and settled and the wine is assembled just before bottling." – Anton van Klopper
All of Anton's wines are made from organically farmed grapes, picked early for lower alcohol and vinified with zero additives. No chemicals are ever used in the winery – not even to clean (only water is used and occasionally alcohol which he distills himself). Wine for the purest of purists among you.
