Pinot Noir clones MV6 and 777 used 50:50.... Picked “early” for acid retention and red-fruit flavour profile. Whole bunch pressed to tank for settling overnight. Juice oxidatively handled.
Racked with light solids directly to old French barriques and allowed to ferment wild until dry. Lees stirring took place every two weeks for 12 months. 50% of the barrels were allowed to undergo malo, 50% sulphured after primary for fruit retention..
Racked to tank in April 2016 and allowed to settle for 2nd winter to cold stabilise and components to come together. Not fined. Filtered lightly.
Our 2018 Rose is made from Pinot Noir grapes, this dry wine combines soft berry flavours and aromas, with fine crisp acidity to give a lingering savoury textual finish.
This wine compliments light salads and pasta or rice dishes, especially with seafood, raw and lightly cooked shellfish and grilled fish and goats' cheeses.
