Description

"Pale peach-pink colour with a little depth, very light on the rim.  The nose is soft with gently fresh and moderately concentrated aromas of strawberries and cream along with red florals and some fermentation esters lift, unfolding confectionary nuances.  Dry to taste and light-bodied, the palate has finely concentrated flavours of strawberries along with lifted florals and fermentation esters, and a little confectionary.  The palate is gently crisp with fresh acidity, and the wine flows easily on a light, fine phenolic line with good energy, leading to a light, confectionary nuanced finish.  This is a pretty and light-fruited dry rosé with strawberry and floral flavours on a fresh, flowing palate.  Serve as an aperitif and with canapés over the next 2 years.  A blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc from the company’s Bridge Pa Triangle vineyard, given a short period of soaking and cool-fermented in tank to 11.5% alc. and <1.0 g/L RS" Raymond Chan, Feb 2018

Fresh and dry with a light salmon pink colour the 2017 Rosé has aromas of raspberry sorbet and a soft, elegant palate of raspberry, red plum and a toffee apple finish with crisp acidity. A great summertime wine, succulent and refreshing drinking from early 2018. It is best as a young wine, lightly chilled as an aperitif or with seafood, white meat and salad dishes.

The grapes for this Rosé were sourced from our Bridge Pa Triangle vineyard. Harvested at optimum ripeness, Merlot (60%) and Cabernet Franc (40%) varieties were used. Spur pruning and good fruit exposure produced clean, ripe fruit with good concentration.

Destemmed grapes were transferred to a basket Press. A short period of soaking and light pressing was enough to colour the juice to a pale pink. Clean juice was run off to a separate tank to ferment at cool temperatures to retain the fruit flavours and reduce phenolics or any bitterness. The wine was then filtered for bottling late 2017.
