Tasting Notes: Pale to medium ruby rose colour with flashes of burnished copper in the meniscus. Delicate aromas of rosehip, pomegranate and floral potpourri play with an undertone of tossed red fruit compote. A dry, fine evolution of the palate is defined by a lean and crisp acidity, containing flavours of strawberry, red currents and watermelon. A faint wet stone minerality brings an earthy elegance to the finish.
Winemaking Notes: Hand-picked 20th & 28th of February from two of our vineyards in Coldstream and Dixon‘s Creek. Whole bunch pressed to stainless steel for fermentation. Elevaged 100% in stainless steel for 5 months.
Viticultural Notes: Optimal conditions for both flowering and fruitset in the vineyards gave well balanced yields with plenty of promise leading into the 2019 harvest.
A dry January and February followed, culminating in a relatively compressed vintage. Attention to detail in the vineyards gave winemakers wonderfully balanced fruit with concentration of flavour and exceptional natural acidity.
