Boutinot South Africa is driven by their passion for discovery and desire to capture the real essence of South Africa in every bottle. It was the simple love of Loire Chenin Blanc that first led them to South Africa in 1994, where they pioneered the wild ferment style that has now been adopted by many producers in this region.

Since then they have been exploring the country's amazing vineyards to make fabulous wines from specific sites and plots that scream location, location, terroir.. Their home-grown South African winemaking team of JD Rossouw, Ryno Booysen and Pierre Louw drive the energy and enthuasiam for expressing the loveliest wines from their country, along with Samantha Bailey's expertise in finesse. The key is knowing the characteristics of each plot, understanding the benefits each cultivar can bring, breaking rules and pushing boundaries. They use a combination of knowledge, a love of nature and science to create versatile, expressive and food-friendly wines from a country that has been making wine for 360 years.

Percheron rosé has been created as a result of our long standing relationships with traditional growers in South Africa. This is young vine Grenache from Swartland which would otherwise have been blended away so is very much true to the championing cause behind the Percheron series. In Swartland, the vineyards of the Reebeek Valley stretch along the lower contours of the Kasteelberg. The soil is mainly Malmsbury scale with loamy soil on the higher grounds and sandy loam lower down the slopes, interspersed with rich Hutton soils. The climate is perfect for viticulture with the low rainfall summer months tempered by cool afternoon breezes and the cold winters, allowing the vines to rest and to build up their reserves. Grapes are sourced from young Grenache vines that would have otherwise been blended away into unknown wines. However, due to long standing relationships with traditional growers, we were able to rescue these grapes to create a Provence-style rosé that is juicy and fruit driven with a sophisticated dryness.

A beautiful light crimson colour with strawberry laces nose. It’s showing some of the muscle and spice of this mature Grenache vineyard that comes across as assertive pink grapefruit acidity with cranberry texture. This Garnacha rather than Provence style rosé has great zest and terrific purpose. Try with Salmon and gravadlax, good ol' fashion prawn cocktail or freshly shucked oysters.
