Elgin, South Africa
Lothian Vineyards Isobel Mourvedre Rosé is a beautiful dry rosé wine gem from Elgin, just 45 miles southeast of Cape Town. In its opulent setting on the banks of the Palmiet River and a private lake in the Elgin Valley, Lothian Vineyards shines in a class of its own. It is situated in the Kogelberg, the world's richest and most diverse biosphere with more than 1800 plant species, of which over 70 are found nowhere else on the planet. Years of searching for the perfect location finally revealed Elgin's cool-climate terroir as an elegant setting for growing grapes to produce exceptional Burgundian-style Pinot Noir and other varietal wines.
Made from 100% Mourvèdre, Lothian Isobel Mourvedre Rosé displays lifted aromas of strawberry, pomegranate and red currants. It offers bracing acidity, white pepper and lively red berries that would pair well with charcuterie and roast meats.
