Introducing The Delightfully Pink Fat Bastard Pinor Noir Rosé 2017


FAT bastard, the well-loved, delicious, full-bodied range of wines, has a new ‘blushing’ bastard: the gorgeous salmon pink FAT bastard Pinor Noir Rosé 2017, dry yet smooth and creamy and bursting with fruit – same wine with same large taste as before, but a brand-new look with a delightful pink blush on the label.


The Pinot Noir grapes harvested from the limestone-rich soils in the beautiful Robertson valley were gently cold-pressed to extract the lovely salmon pink colour.


Tasting notes

Enticing ripe sweet strawberry and watermelon aromas wrapped in floral overtones follow onto a creamy palate filled with fresh summer berries and ending on a zippy note. Best enjoyed well chilled.

Suggested food pairing

Seared salmon, beef carpaccio or BBQ ribs.  Pssst. I served this delicious wine with dessert and it was a match made in heaven.  So, you can have it with savoury items as well as sweet.

Retail price

The FAT bastard Pinot Noir Rosé 2017 is widely available nationally and retails between R75 and R85.
