Just in time for mid-Summer, a breathtakingly, incandescent rosé called Isabelle has made its way into the market.
Terre Paisible has released it’s very first wine – a vibrant, floral rosé called “Isabelle”. Named as an ode to an equally striking, powerful and beautiful woman – and a reflection of the wine’s femininity and strength, complexity and beauty. It’s one of those rare rosés, well suited to sipping at Summer-time soirees as it is paired with a gastronomic delight for dinner.
Terre Paisible – which means Peaceful Land – is located amidst the rolling hills of Franschhoek. It’s a sanctuary nestled within the heart of the valley, on fertile flood plains of rich soils. A place where fine wines are crafted from treasured vines, and the olive groves offer up the purest of oils.
It is here where Terre Paisible’s consultant winemaker, Adam Mason, creates wines of elegance and distinction for. A dedication to showcasing the country’s phenomenal terroirs, the estate seeks out the most extraordinary of sites to capture and enhance what is already there and allow nature to reach its highest potential.
“There are few wines styles that evoke the spirit of summer quite like classically styled Rosés. The 2022 vintage is a blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre, sourced from a dry land farm in the Paradyskloof Valley – between the Helderberg and Stellenbosch Mountains,” Adam explains.
The grapes are whole-bunch pressed before undergoing fermentation. Pale salmon in appearance, with light copper hues, it is a wine of complexity and elegance. Expect vibrant fruit and florals aromas (rose petals, pomelo zest and stone fruit) with delicate marzipan notes.
Richly layered, the palate with its attractive savoury notes and succulent core of fruit, reveals the benefit of lees-aging through a long and perfectly balanced finish. It’s the perfect accompaniment to rich, seafood dishes, creamy pastas and fresh salads.
Only 300 cases of the maiden vintage are available – shop online at www.terrepaisible.com and at select boutique wine merchants.
