Description

"Pale pink rosé in a dry style with delicate cherry and watermelon flavours. Soft wine with an ethereal texture and appealing purity. It may be my imagination but this wine actually tastes organic. It seems natural rather than forced, if that makes any sense." Bob Campbell, Master of Wine

Dry and delicate, showcasing red fruits characteristic of Pinot Noir, with the natural ferment adding a touch of spice and depth to the palate.

The 2016 winegrowing vintage for this mystery wine will be remembered for a challenging cold start with a spectacular long summer. A very long and constant frost fighting season ensured the team were under pressure from the start. Towards the end of January they predicted a later harvest than normal, but an intense long summer followed by a dry harvest period this enabled them to deliver the fruit on-time, intact and without stress. The harvest itself was fast and furious, one of the most compact we have ever experienced.

Certified organic grapes were hand-picked and whole bunch-pressed before being naturally fermented with wild yeast. Around 5% of the blend was fermented and aged in old French oak barriquesfor three months to give additional texture and complexity. 95% was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness and delicate red fruit character.
