It’s time once again for Wine of the Month Club! I have sampled some delicious wines over the past few months and now I’m back, ready to introduce you to my favourite wine for October 2017. Say hello to the Carrol Boyes Sketchbook Rosé 2016. This beautiful wine is the perfect summer wine and is the perfect gift for any Carrol Boyes fan. Here’s why it’s my pick for Wine of the Month Club this October.
Yes indeed, Carrol Boyes, the well-known South African designer has teamed up with her equally talented brother, Johan Boyes (a farmer and financier) to create limited edition premier wines that are worth talking about. The Carrol Boyes Wines range features uniquely designed collector’s labels that change with every new vintage, turning fine winemaking into a completely different type of art.
Made from 100% Cinsaut, the Carrol Boyes Sketchbook Rosé 2016 is a beautiful salmon pink colour. Take a sip and you will uncover flavours of cherries, strawberries, and raspberries with hints of apricot and apple. These fruit flavours combine with a good acidity to give a long lasting mouthfeel.
It’s the ideal wine for hot weather drinking and can be enjoyed by the glass while sitting poolside as well as with a wide range of light dishes including salads, summer pasta dishes, seafood, and goats’ cheese.
The Carrol Boyes Sketchbook Rosé 2016 is available online from the Carrol Boyes Wines website and is priced at R495 for a case of 6 bottles. Click here to buy it online now.
