The grapes were picked on two separate days with the Pinot Noir harvested on October 11th and the Cabernet Sauvignon on November 9. They were left on skins over night to extract the right amount of colour, then direct pressed to stainless steel tanks where the juice was allowed to settle. We fermented at a cool temperature to preserve aromatics and fruit. It was bottled in March 2020.
Our house style of rose is bright and refreshing with a pale colour and great fruit. The nose has vibrant red fruits such as, sour cherry, raspberry, watermelon with complimentary savoury notes with hints of floral orange blossom. The palate supports the nose with rich texture and a delicate finish. This bright, refreshing Rose was built for warm summer days and good company
