Tasting Notes:

"The famous rugby ground of the same name is up for redevelopment, so this brilliant rosé will have to preserve the Newlands name. Made from Pinot Meunier as a whole bunch-pressed blanc de noirs style, it’s the best rosé in the Cape: fresh and complex, with rose petal and redcurrant fruit and zesty acidity." TA

Raised by Wolves is the brainchild of Adam Mason, winemaker at Mulderbosch Vineyards. The name is a parody of the constant one-upmanship of winemakers: "My wine is a single vineyard." ... "Yeah, well my wine is naturally fermented." ... "Oh yeah, well my wine is hand sorted by berry." And Adam's response: "Well my wines are all of the above, and I was raised by wolves."

Whole-bunch pressed, settled overnight without the use of enzymes and then racked to neutral 500L barrels for uninoculated fermentation.

After 7 months of barrel maturation the wine was cleanly racked and bottled.
