We’re playing Queen of Hearts this Valentine’s Day, and trust us when we tell you a bottle of the extraordinary Jean Roi Cap Provincial Rosé 2018 will capture your true love’s heart.
What’s more, this premium rosé from Anthonij Rupert Wyne is guaranteed to take your love for this style of wine up a notch too. A blend of Cinsault, Grenache and Shiraz, the pale copper pink wine takes its cue from the international Summer drinking styles, and is a fusion of fresh fruit flavours – think melon, peach and nectarine with a little lemon zest twist. Its regal bottle is embossed with JR (paying homage to Jean Roi, the French Huguenot from Provence who pioneered the L’Ormarins Wine Estate’s 300-year-old viticultural history), and the wine is lovely for a valentine toast at sunset, but is also perfect with delicious nectarine caprese salad, with grilled prawns and crayfish, or seared duck breast served with a raspberry jus (just a few ideas for your valentine dinner date). Oh … and just to set the record straight … it’s not only for the girls. Real men do most certainly drink pink. This wine costs around R240 a bottle, and you can get it from specialist wine stores as well as directly from Anthonij Rupert Wyne at rupertwines.com.
Since we really, really love our readers, we’re giving away a case of this wine for you to share with your valentine (or not, as the case may be … nothing wrong with a little self-love). To enter, all you need do is visit our Facebook or Instagram page and tag a rosé-loving friend in the comments section. Entries close February 26.
