DESCRIPTION

Tasting Notes

Pale salmon pink. A bright, playful and lifted nose that showcases exquisite balanced strawberry & raspberry fruit.

Wine Making

The fruit was picked in early March 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 then commenced using an aromatic Riesling style yeast reaching dryness in three weeks. The wine remained on lees for a further three weeks. After stabilisation and filtration the wine was bottled in early May, with an anticipated release date in Spring.

Cellaring

The Rosé 2019 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.

Technical

The Grapes: Featuring grape varieties from our original Grahams Sixties Block including Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and Chenin Blanc and the newly planted Red Varieties block including Cornifesto, Xeres, Pinot St. George and Caracosa.

Palate:

This light-bodied wine sings on the palate with notes of fresh strawberry fruit and smooth, creamy balance, giving way to a long, crisp, fresh fruit finish.
