DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale pink, salmon hues. A bright, playful and lifted nose that showcases exquisite red berry and hints of strawberries and cream.

Wine Making

The fruit was picked in mid April in the early hours of the morning. The grapes were then immediately crushed, de-stemmed and pressed to provide a gorgeous pale pink juice. A slow, cool fermentation was then commenced using an aromatic Riesling style yeast reaching dryness in early May. The wine remained on lees for two weeks. Following tastings in August, we decided to add some Fiano and Trebbiano to the blend to enhance the aromatics and colour tone.

Cellaring

The Rosé 2017 is lovely to drink on its own, but also works with a wide range of food and flavours. Served chilled and enjoy now with a zesty prawn salad or an aromatic paella.

Palate:

This light-bodied wine sings on the palate with notes of fresh raspberries and creamy sherbet, giving way to a long, crisp and dry finish.
