Tasting: Plush, dry and textural rosé with beautiful aromas of crushed strawberries and watermelon lifted with a crisp acidity.

Vineyard: A cool start to the season with good soil moisture produced a perfectly balanced canopy. By early December El Nino started with consistently warmer and dryer days and in January rains came in perfect time relieving the vines with close to 100mm falling. The harvest period (Feb - March) was warmer than average, making all the varieties come off at once. One of the shortest vintages on record and up there with the best.

Winemaking: 100% whole bunch pinot noir hand picked early to retain its freshness then pressed straight to old oak barrels for fermentation using wild yeast from the vineyard. 

Success! Feel free to continue shopping or head to your cart .
