About this Wine
Hunter Valley, NSW
Intense florals, punchy red berries and ripe orange citrus tones
A wonderful growing season, with 2020 receiving over 1000mm of rain providing the earth with excellent water, contributing to healthy canopies and great crops. The weather dried out after the 4th of January, remaining cool over the summer, with great fruit the result, picking intensely flavoured berries with great natural acidities and excellent balance.
Textural with great length and power, the fruit aromas present on the fore of the palate. Intensity, focus and weight are all attributes of this dry rosé.
Fruit was allocated and picked to produce this style of wine. Picked early in the day, crushed and chilled to press, where four hours of skin contact occurred, before the valves were opened and the juice was allowed to drain. This time on skins allowed for lovely blush colour pickup and flavour extraction to occur. There the juice was settled, fined then racked and warmed for fermentation, 80% in Stainless Steel and 20% put to wood for indigenous fermentation. After fermentation the wine was blended and bottled without fining.
Made to drink as a young, fresh wine.
