Description

A delectably dry Rose made from premium, estate grown Pinot Noir. Classically Pinot on the nose, with lashings of wild raspberries, candied strawberry and rose petals. The palate is textural and complex, with savoury spice and a long, refreshing finish.

Winemaking Notes

To extract its delicate pink hue, the wine underwent a short period of skin contact during pressing only. Fermentation was cool (11-14 degrees) in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and aromatics.

Growing Conditions

Vintage 2019 presented enormously favourable conditions for growers in the Yarra Valley. December through to February saw stretches of warm days, devoid of harsh heat spikes or patches of rain. Cool nights allowed the grapes to retain acidity, leading to generous yields of healthy fruit. Consequently, harvest was quite compressed, resulting in a shorter than average vintage duration.

100% Pinot Noir, sourced from our lower lying, 777 clone Pinot Noir blocks. Fruit is grown and selected purposely for this Rose, harvested slightly earlier than our red Pinot Noir wines to ensure fruit brightness and fresh acidity.
