Painted Wolf Paarl Rousanne
A medium bodied wine with citrus, white peach and creamy aromas. The wine has a lovely texture with a long finish and fresh acid keeping it vivacious and vibrant. The wine is sealed with a Diam cork to retain freshness.
The wine was fermented at Koopmanskloof in Stellenboschin a 2000 litre oak tank before being decanted into 300 and 500 litre French oak barrels, about 25% new. Chenin lees were added to the wine and stirred regularly. Malolactic fermentation was not encouraged. After 11 months in wood, the wine was bottled. Only 5950 bottles were produced.
The wine has lovely texture and some complexity. Serve with smoked snoek pate with apricot relish, or with a salad of roasted red pepper, Dalewood Huguenot Cheese and rocket with anchovy vinaigrette, or lovely ravioli filled with salmon served with salsa Verde. Roast duck with Honey, lavender and thyme would be seriously delicious with the wine.
