Pinot Rosé 2020

Delicate pink colour with hints of wild strawberry and rose petal in the bouquet. Soft and ethereal on the palate with watermelon and spice. Vibrant acidity with a bright and refreshing finish.

  • It was a cool start to the season with occasional frosts, two brief hailstorms in October, and a higher amount of rainfall during December. We also experienced more cloud cover than normal, the severe bushfires in Australia may have contributed to this. By the end of January, we were experiencing more settled weather. Veraison was early February and our grape harvest began early March. With the added pressure of Covid-19, we were happy to have the weather on our side. It is certainly a harvest to remember and we will be rewarded with a vintage of high-quality wine.
  • Hand-picked in ideal condition and ripeness on the 8th April 2020. Fully destemmed, with approximately 6 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: 3.4, TA: 6.0 g/L, Alc: 13.0%, RS: 1.7 g/l
    750ml
