The Black Elephant Vintners The Fox & The Flamingo Rosé appears a rose gold in color with aromas of raspberry, strawberry, watermelon, cotton candy and citrus. The palate is crisp and bursting with flavors of summer fruits, finishing with a distinctive, savory minerality.
Surrounded by majestic mountains and near the quaint village of Franschhoek. Founded by the French Huguenots in 1687, this beautiful area is home to some of South Africa’s most sought-after wine. Dubbed as the rebels of the wine industry, Black Elephant Vintners 3 founders produce elegant and modern wines from their partnership. Jacques is the body, providing what you can see and taste. Kevin is the mind, bringing innovation through creatively cultivating radical ideas for growth and Raymond is the soul.
100% Pinotage sourced from Simonsberg-Paarl, Western-Cape
Our 2022 Rose was made using the Free run juice exclusively from Pinotage to minimize color and phenolic extraction from the skins and preserve the natural acidity. The juice was settled overnight before inoculation with cultured yeast and cold fermented to enhance the aroma and flavor profile of the wine.
The wine was matured for one month on its gross lees in stainless steel tanks. The wine was stabilized using only bentonite and light filtration before bottling.
