Joostenberg Little J Rosé, Paarl and Stellenbosch
Writing in Time Out Hong Kong, “Flying Winemaker” Eddie McDougall was all about rosé this week.
As “soppy” spring turns to “endless” summer, McDougall invited readers to “join the rosé revolution” and ignore the style’s bad rap.
“Do some exploring and you’ll discover gems that are a perfect companion to the summer dining table,” he wrote.
One wine he picked was this “little ripper” from South African, a blend of Pinotage, Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon which he said was, “complex and deceptively dry on the palate after the aromatics throw out confectionary tones of raspberry candy.”
