Behind all the seriousness and science, drinking wine is about having a good time. This Blush is our bottle of fun. We harvest, press and ferment the red and white grapes together and let them create their own vibe. The youthful, fresh red berry flavours of the Syrah meet the riper tropical peach and apricot of the Colombard for the ultimate refreshing summer’s day wine. Keep your ice bucket close and your friends closer.

NOTES FROM THE WINEMAKER
This wine is unique – the grapes are harvested together, pressed together and fermented together.  Putting these cultivars together so early in the process allows more time for the aromas to meet and marry, combining the cherry, strawberry and raspberry aromas of the Syrah with the elegance of blossom and sweet perfume flavours from the Colombard.  The lovely salmon colour is a result of only 4 hours of skin contact.

HISTORY OF THE BLUSH
This wine was first made by current MD Stanley Louw in 2006 when there was an oversupply of red wine on the market. He used our Syrah to make a light-coloured, elegant dry rosé inspired by those from the south of France.
Today, this is one of our best-sellers with the Europeans being especially fond of it during their summer.  Needless to say, it’s also one of Stanley’s favourites.

INTERESTING FACT
Syrah and Shiraz are the same grape.  We’ve chosen to use Syrah (like the French) to enforce the elegance of the Syrah variety and its role in this blend.
