Pinot Rose

Pinot Rose 2017

Our second Pinot Rose vintage

Delicate light pink rose colour with a hint of cranberry and strawberry in the bouquet.

A vibrant, agile and energetic focus on the palate.

Expressive youthful Pinot Noir - the perfect aperitif.

Vineyard

This wine is from our Organic, Biodynamic Certified Estate vineyard located in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. The vineyard was planted in 1998 after careful site selection. The soils on the beautiful north facing slope are Waenga fine sandy loam and Letts steepland soil with an elevation of 217 - 264 metres, on 44.55° south.

Vintage

Although our Central Otago summer was cooler and windier than usual the fruit proudly ripened as normal. The season resulted in smaller bunch and

lower berry weight which resulted in the Pinot Noir being concentrated with very good structure and weight.

Winemaking

Hand-picked in ideal condition and ripeness on the 5th April 2017. Fully destemmed, with 24 hours skin contact. Only free run juice used, indigenous yeast

ferment in stainless steel tank. The winemaking was very much in keeping with the traditional practices of the Old World.

The winemaker, Rudi Bauer, has combined these techniques, and his own personal understanding, to create this wine.
