Beresford Classic Rosé 2017 (6 x 750mL) McLaren Vale, SA

Winemaking - The challenge with harvest was all about timing, ensuring we captured the delicate red berry fruit flavours on the vine and then crushing onto skins at the winery. The must was chilled for 36 hours with the occasional plunging of the Grenache grape skins to extract the lovely pink colour pigments. The must was then inoculated with an aromatic white wine yeast to start a slow cool fermentation while still on the Grenache grape skins for a period of 3 days. After this time, the lovely pink juice was drained off to a small tank to finish the cool slow ferment to capture the delicate Grenache fruit aromatics and bring out the light strawberry and redcurrant flavours. Bottled young to capture the fresh red fruit flavours.
