Are you a Fox or a Flamingo?
There is a Fox who makes wine,
that very year waits for a sign.
So on that Day,
the Flamingo will say
Wow, this tastes mighty fine!
Out with the new, in with old, but back with the new??
This is the new vintage of the Rose Rebel but we have gone back to our old Rosé label, The Fox & Flamingo.

1st Week of February 2022
Our 2023 Rosé was made using exclusively the Free run juice from Pinotage in order to minimize colour and phenolic extraction from the skins as well as preserve the natural acidity. The juice was settled overnight prior to inoculation with cultured yeast and cold fermented to enhance the aroma and flavour profile of the wine
The wine was matured for 1 month on its gross lees in stainless steel tanks. The wine was stabilized using only bentonite and a light filtration prior to bottling.
Rose Gold in colour with aromas of raspberry, strawberry, watermelon, cotton candy and grapefruit. The palate is crisp and bursting with flavours of summer fruits, finishing with a distinctive, savoury minerality.
