This dry Pinotage Rose wine is another fine example of Dennis Horton's vision and continuing the tradition of pioneering new and different wine from Virginia.

Intense color from a 10 day cold soak on the skins then pressed and 100% barrel aged for 6 months in Syrah barrels - the wine has intense berry and stone fruit aromas , a hefty mid palate and a tannin smokey finish - A rose built for red wine drinkers.

"Horton Gears and Lace Rosé Pinotage 2018 was a lovely bright dark pink, darker it seemed, than some Burgundies. On the nose was smoked Gouda, in the mouth we tasted a tang of watermelon. The wine was smooth, refreshing and quite lovely." - Peter F May - The Pinotage Club
