The growing season was back to the mean after 2018’s unprecedented heat. Numerous cold snaps during harvest meant there was a need
for helicopters to frost fight at day break. The Pinot Noir for this years’ Rosé was harvested on the 20th of March.
Grown within the Waenga silty loam soils of the lower terraces,
the Pinot Noir vines for this Rosé express opulent berry flavours with a light tannin profile.
Hand-harvested Pinot Noir was cold-soaked for 24 to 48 hours before pressing the brightly coloured juice off the grape skins. The juice was fermented cool using selected aromatic yeast.
Due to small berry size, the wine has a wonderful depth of colour. A small portion was fermented in old French oak to add a hint of caramel to the palate.
