Fresh and dry with a light salmon pink colour the grapes for the Rosé were harvested at optimum ripeness from our vineyard. Cabernet Franc was used giving us great flavor, fresh acidity and aromatics. 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 color the juice to a pale pink. Clean juice was run off to a separate tank to ferment at cool temperatures to retain the fruit flavors and reduce phenolics or any bitterness. The wine was then filtered for bottling late 2017.
A plush palate with a hint of nettle, mint and strawberry's and cream.
