Pinot Noir Rose More Information

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

Ideal conditions after a summer 2018 heatwave produced a near perfect growing season for our Pinot Noir grapes.Hot weather and little rain allowed the grapes to fully ripen on the vine giving both excellent quality and high yields. The grapes were received in early October and received 24hours of maceration before being pressed. After primary fermentation, some of the the wine went through malolactic fermentation to naturally round the acidity & add even more character to this most revered grape variety
