L'Avenir Estate

Glenrosé 2023

Stellenbosch, South Africa

100% Pinotage | 13.5% ABV


Discover this 2023 South African rosé wine made from 100% Pinotage grapes in the Stellenbosch region. The GlenRosé was inspired by a trip to Provence by L’Avenir’s winemaker, Dirk Coetzee. Although the wine is influenced by French flair and elegance, it is made from 100% Pinotage and is as proudly South African as can be.

It displays a pale onionskin colour. On the nose, elegant notes of pomegranate, ruby grape fruit, strawberries, and raspberries.

On the palate, a crisp and impressive entry of bright fruit and acidity is followed by smooth textured mid-palate with a long and seductive finish.

Service: Serve chilled at 7-13°C.

Food Pairing: The elegance of GlenRosé
is matched by delicate salmon sashimi or grilled lobster.

The winemaker Dirk Coetzee was mentored by the legendary Stellenbosch “Pope of Pinotage”, Francois Naudé. He specialises in site specific, authentic wines in the most revered winemaking region in South Africa. "L’Avenir is a boutique specialist of modern Stellenbosch Chenin Blanc and Pinotage. Showcasing the versatility and class of Pinotage by producing single vineyard wines, is my greatest passion and pleasure" he says.

constant wind, elevation, and a longer ripening period, this vineyard is specifically managed to craft elegant and refreshing rosé.

In response to challenges like residential expansion and climate change, L'Avenir is proactively expanding their Pinotage plantings. They have received the Sustainable Agriculture certification from IPW and are recognised by Wieta for socially responsible wine production.
