Pinot Rosé 2021 - New Release

Dreamlike rose petal colour with a bouquet of wild strawberry and blossom. Soft and luscious with sweet berry notes, a hint of spice followed by a refreshing acidity - the perfect aperitif.

  • With warm Spring conditions, growth was steady throughout the vineyard. Flowering began in mid-November and following a cold front in late November, frost risk remained low for the remainder of the season. The new year brought both rain and snow leaving a dusting on the Pisa Ranges, the lowest we have ever seen this far into the season. Warm dry weather followed right through into harvest which enabled the fruit to ripen to perfection. Veraison took place at the end of January and we began our harvest in March. Optimal conditions early in the season have resulted in an above average yield and a long dry season has provided us with exceptional quality.
  • Hand-picked in ideal condition and ripeness on the 30th March 2021. Fully destemmed, with approximately 4 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.
  • pH: 3.5
    Total Acidity: 5.2 g/L
    Alcohol: 13.0%
    Residual Sugar: 2.9 g/l
    Volume: 750ml
