Winery Tasting Notes
This delicate Rosé has an inviting bouquet of vibrant red berries and cream.
Luscious ripe strawberry and raspberry flavours on the palate are complemented by mouth watering crisp acidity.
The Pinot Noir parcels were harvested, chilled, crushed and de-stemmed directly to the press where they soaked on skins for 16 hours in a closed inert environment. The juice was then pressed off gently and cold settled for 72 hours. The clear juice was racked and inoculated with a selected yeast to enhance the varietal Pinot Noir characters of red fruit. After a long, cool fermentation the wine was stabilised and lightly filtered prior to bottling.
