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:
 Marlborough experienced a mild-to-cool spring period, which ensured that the vines naturally produced lighter than average yields. These mild temperatures then extended into the summer months, coupled with an unseasonable period of rain, which ultimately alleviated the drought conditions we had experienced over the past two years. Carrying lighter than usual crops along with the cooler weather meant vintage started only a week later than previous years.

WINEMAKING
Winemaker:
 Jeff Fyfe
Harvest Date: 28th March - 11th April 2017
Winemaking Analysis: Alc 13% pH 3.45 TA 6.3 RS 5.2g/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.
