Slowine Rose

Slowine Rose

Ref: A135816

This is a profoundly fruity, dry rosé with an amazing freshness.

Good food pairings would include roasted tomato soup, Thai curry dishes, North African dishes (tagines and slow-braised dishes), salads (try it with a endive and tomato combination). Also a lovely brew on its own. (2016 13.5% abv)

Founded by Carlo Petrini in Italy in 1986, Slow Food is an international association that promotes food and wine culture, but also defends food and agricultural biodiversity worldwide. It opposes the standardisation of taste, defends the need for consumer information, protects cultural identities tied to food and gastronomic traditions, safeguards foods and cultivation and processing techniques inherited from tradition and defends domestic and wild animal and vegetable species.

The grapes have been sourced from growers, situated around the Overberg Mountain in Elgin, whose grapes are farmed eco-sensitively and who are involved in the maintenance of the Kogelberg Biosphere. This is a marine and floral reserve where the terrestrial and coastal environments are of international conservation importance and are fully protected. They are, however, unique categories of protected areas combining both conservation and sustainable use of natural resources.

You will find a picture of a Parrot Beaked Tortoise on the wine's label. This rare tortoise is also known as the "padloper" and is mainly found in renosterveld patches in the Kogelberg. The males develop bright red / orange noses during the breeding season which makes them look like "boozy" old men! The tortoise emblem, of course, further accentuates the whole concept of 'slowness'!
