Description

Delicate light pink rose colour with a hint of cranberry and strawberry in the bouquet. A vibrant, agile and energetic focus on the palate. Expressive youthful Pinot Noir Rosé - the perfect aperitif.

This wine is from the winemakers Organic, Biodynamic Certified Estate vineyard located in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. The vineyard was planted in 1998 after careful site selection. The soils on the beautiful north facing slope are Waenga fine sandy loam and Letts steepland soil with an elevation of 217 - 264 metres, on 44.55° south.

Winemakers experienced an extraordinary summer resulting in the hottest growing season eer in Central Otago's modern history. Early flowering and ripening meant their normal six months of growing was cendensed into a mere five months. February rain brought relief for the vines and enabled them to achieve physiological ripeness, and warmer than normal nights lead to lower acidity. Harvest dates were brought forward to achieve perfect balance.

Hand-picked in ideal condition and ripeness on the 8th March 2018. Fully destemmed, with 24hrs skin contact. Only free run juice used, indigenous yeast ferment in stainless steel tank. The winemaking was very much in keeping with the traditional practices of the Old Worls. The winemaker, Rudi Bauer, has combined these techniques, and his own personal understanding, to create this wine.
