Happiness in your glass and on your plate

Make Steenberg’s delightful Ruby Rosé your go to spring and summer wine and take any happy occasion up a notch.

This invigoratingly dry and vivacious, pale coral Rosé pairs beautifully with warm, sunny days. The just released 2020 Steenberg Ruby Rosé is 100% Syrah and teems with scents of strawberry and raspberry sherbet, rose petals, ripe sweet melon and fresh garden herbs. Refreshing with a mouthful of juicy watermelon, cherry and spiced stone fruit, this dry, fruit-forward Rosé is bright and flirty, yet shows lovely depth that lingers long after the first sip. It’s perfect for picnics, light lunches, sundowners and all happy occasions in between, and available countrywide (R105 at the cellar door).
