Description

The Chameleon Rose is a dry classic French “blanc de noir” style made from a free-run juice blend of shiraz and merlot. Extended pre-fermentation skin contact gives the wine its brilliant cherry pink hue. Harvested earlier to retain fresher acids and treated very reductively in the cellar, this helps to capture the primary fruit flavours of strawberry coulis & dried cranberries with delicate spiciness. Excellent with flash-fried prawns and red-chili vinaigrette.

BACKGROUND
The Chameleon Rosé features a Cape Dwarf Chameleon perched on a beautiful spray of pink Watsonia borbonica flowers. This elegant, spring lowering plant is abundant on the rocky hills of Jordan Wine Estate and is also commonly found on the slopes of Table Mountain.
