2011 Pinot Noir Rosé (SOLD OUT)

2011 Pinot Noir Rosé (SOLD OUT)

Our 2011 Pinot Noir Rosé is made entirely of grapes grown at the lower end of our eastern block of Pinot Noir. This area is at the bottom of a long slope, and has a great accumulation of dark organic matter over Peel clay loam soils. The clone 777 Pinot Noir vines that grow in this sub-block always give us light, fruit forward Pinot Noir, which lends itself very well to making Rosé. Harvested by hand on the 21st September, the bunches were gently destemmed before a five day cold soak to extract colour and aromatics. After soaking the grapes were gently pressed, the juice was settled in tank, then fermented at 15 degrees with a selected Rhone yeast. After fermentation the wine was kept on yeast lees for a month to impart further complexity and texture. Final racking, filtering and bottling took place in March 2012.

Tasting Notes

Berries galore. That is the best way to describe our 2011 Pinot Noir Rosé. It even looks like it was squeezed from berries. Cooked strawberries appear on the nose along with Pinot Noir signature characters, earth and chalk. The palate is pure berries. Strawberries, cranberries, blackberries and cherries all fight for attention in a velvety but refreshingly crisp mouthful.
