Tasting Notes

TASTING NOTE

Bouquet: This pretty light peach coloured rosé has an enticing bouquet of pomegranate, fresh strawberries and honeysuckle.
Palate: A juicy, rich palate with warming flavours of strawberry shortcake, which is given focus and length by well-balanced acidity.

VINTAGE SUMMARY
Vineyard:
 The growing season in Marlborough started out warm and dry, resulting in very even flowering and ultimately balanced vines with the right amount of crop to get them through to harvest. The warm weather continued through Spring and Summer, with periodic rains which kept the vines hydrated through the warm growing season.  These warmer conditions also meant harvest started around 2 weeks earlier than the previous year, with fruit that was full of flavour, naturally balanced acidity and lovely weight.

WINEMAKING
Winemaker:
 Natalie Christensen
Harvest Date: 19th March - 1st April 2018
Winemaking Analysis: Alc 13% pH 3.45 TA 5.80 RS 6.1g/l

The parcels of fruit that created this Pinot Rosé were individually harvested over a period of two weeks. The fruit was crushed, destemmed, briefly soaked, then gently pressed. The juice was cold settled for 48hrs then racked prior to a long cool fermentation in stainless steel tanks to capture bright, fresh fruit characters. Each parcel was fermented separately with a range of yeasts to build complexity and structure. Following fermentation the wine was blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.
