This Rosé was made entirely from the 777 clone of Pinot Noir grown at our Bowral vineyards.
The grapes were specifically picked for Rosé, crushed and pressed to yield a lightly coloured red juice which was subsequently fermented like a white wine.
There are bright, fresh aromas of spiced strawberry, red apple, watermelon and cranberry. Note that at this youthful stage (August ’18) there is quite a bit of aromatic fruit ester present in the form of pineapple/banana. This will subside as time goes on. It acts to give a lift to the aroma profile.
The fleshy palate is generously flavoured with juicy ripe strawberry and cranberry flavours throughout, concluding in a satisfying and dry finish.
Overall, this is a delicious, easy drinking style, perfect for the warmer weather.
Great with hors d’oeuvres, or just by itself!
Serve chilled. Drink now to 2022.
