Tasting Notes

This very elegant soft salmon pink Rosé overwhelms the nose with aromas of freshly picked strawberries, rose petal and cherry flavours. It follows through on the palate with delicious ripe raspberries with a delicate finish.

Should last half an hour with the cap off and reach for the next bottle!

About The Harvest

The Rosé project is from vineyards dedicated to Rosé, the fruit is hand harvested as if to produce a white wine with high natural acidity, hence no added acid in the cellar.
Yield: 9 - 10 tons per hectare

In The Cellar

Crushed and pressed, leaving the skins soaking for an hour or two. This infuses the delicate copper salmon colour unique for Grenache and a cold fermentation in stainless tanks ensures an elegant wine.
