Description

  • Crisp red apple
  • Pear
  • Soft red berries
  • Fresh & dry

A paler than pale Rosé, textural & crisp. Aromas of crisp red apples and fresh pears entice the palate in this elegant but punchy Rosé. Will serve well with 3 to 5 years cellaring.

A dry winter followed by moderate rains in late spring and early summer enabled vines to produce a healthy crop of fruit. A dry harvest period ensured no disease & optimum ripening conditions. Producing very pure wines with good varietal expression and flavour.

Gris de Gris or Grey from Grey is the term used to make a white/Rose wine from red coloured grapes. Pinot Grigio, a “grey” variety as the fruit appears red but the juice is somewhat orange and not red at all, was blended with a splash of another red variety Pinot Noir. Pinot Grigio is left on skins for half a day to extract the lovely colour and flavour for this wine. A portion is also naturally fermented in old French oak casks to add some creaminess.

Step off the sidewalk and venture 'Down The Lane'. Excite your palate with the new savoury pick-me-upper Pinot Grigio Arneis, gluggable Rosé Gris de Gris, fully charged Shiraz Tempranillo and soft and juicy Merlot Durif Shiraz.
