Pinot Noir Rose

A serious Rosé made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. This wine is a single-vineyard designated bottling and its complex aromas of cherries, rosehip, strawberries and cream, and tight acidity and length, make it a great food wine. Best served very lightly chilled.

WINEMAKING NOTES

Pinot Noir grapes were hand harvested from 17th to 20th October 2015. Thanks to an Indian summer, the fruit was picked with no disease pressure and very good ripeness levels. After a cool maceration on the skins – which developed the wine’s colour and red fruit flavours – the grapes were gently pressed. Close to the end of primary fermentation, the must was co-inoculated with lactic acid bacteria for MLF. Once the desired acidity and mouth-feel was achieved, MLF was ceased through crash chilling. The wine was bottled early to maintain the fresh fruit aromas.
