2010 Mulderbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Rose 

Coastal Region, South Africa

$11 Retail

Along the southwestern tip of South Africa, the subtropical climate created by the convergence of the Atlantic and Indian oceans influences coastal vineyards with long, sun-drenched summers and cool breezy evenings. Located east of Cape Town in the Stellenbosch area, Mulderbosch produces an array of inexpensive wines. For this rose made from 100 percent cabernet sauvignon, grapes were pressed lightly to attain its reddish-salmon tinge. Following fermentation, the wine rested on its lees and underwent light fining and filtering before bottling. In the glass, it offers aromas of pink grapefruit, blood orange, cranberry and a touch of spice. On the palate, taste red berries, watermelon, herb, white pepper and citrusy notes on the flinty finish. Serve slightly chilled with roasted chicken, salads, tuna steaks, poached salmon, quiche, shrimp remoulade, tempura-fried vegetables and Asian dishes. Buy it at: Dorignac's. Drink it at: Mondo and 5 Fifty 5.
