Winemaker: Marcus Wright/Rebecca Wiffen
Alcohol: 13.3% pH: 3.50 RS: 5.2g/L
TA: 6.5g/L Brix: 22.1 - 22.9
Harvested from low yielding Pinot Noir vines, picked early to retain the abundant fruit characters and crisp acidity. Delicious strawberry and cream aromas lead to a dry elegant palate that has lovely concentration and length.
One to two year, best consumed whilst young and fresh.
Perfect with a light summer lunch or barbecue.
Awards & Reviews
Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 - Bronze Medal
Raymond Chan Wine Reviews - FOUR STARS
The nose is fresh and bright with tightly concentrated red cherry and raspberry fruit aromas. Dryish to taste and elegant in expression, bright and lifted flavours of raspberries, cherries and watermelon. Mouthwatering finish with delicate berry, confectionary and mineral tones.

Judges comments....A lovely rose petal colour. Well balanced for a Rosé with a lovely fruit acid finish. Well made, great with the paella. Fresh and vibrant, racy, lifted and long - Brent Marris.

Fresh strawberry, pears and hints of dried herbs. Rich attack with a hint of sugar and fine line of acidity.
