Tasting Notes

A wine with a delicate, beautiful rose petal pink colour. The palate is red fruit - ripe raspberry and strawberry - balanced with sweetness and acidity, giving a long lingering fresh taste. A delicious lifestyle wine, elegant and soft with an off-dry finish.

Blend Information

100% Merlot

In The Vineyard

For our growing Rose market, we have dedicated a very specific Merlot vineyard which is situated on a cooler south-westerly facing slope, 150m above sea level. The decomposed granite soils include desirable clay elements that retain moisture during the drier months of ripening, yet, as a result of prominent gravel fractions, allow for excellent drainage.

In The Cellar

The Merlot grapes for our Rose were picked at 22.5 degrees Brix, crushed, separated from the skins, settled, racked and fermented the same as white wine. The wine was fermented cold, 12-14 degrees Celsius to retain fresh red fruit aromas. The delicate pink colour for the Rose is derived from the red pigments that are released during the crushing process. We stopped fermentation by cooling the wine to minus 4 degrees Celsius. This resulted in an off-dry Rose.
