Description

Grapes for the 2016 Vintage Rose were grown in the Piccadilly Valley - one of the coolest, wettest and most humid sub-regions in the Adelaide Hills. Such climatic conditions produce plump grapes resulting in crisp, finely-flavoured wines. Gentle bunch pressing of chilled grapes gave the wine its soft, long finish. Strawberry and cherry aromas are from the pinot noir grape and the biscuity bouquet and flavour are due to extended time on yeast lees. Addition of pinot noir fermented on its dark skins provides the attractive salmon hue and contributes to richness and flavour. Serve chilled.

"Pale-pink colour. Smoky pinot aromas, a touch of cracked yeast character, a little toast. Soft, finely-textured and dry, the acidity well-harmonised and a seemingly low liqueur level. Very appealing. (Formerly Salmon Brut. 100% pinot noir)."

“Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed. Delicious fresh-cut strawberries and red cherries; when you taste the fruit you think it will be sweet, but it’s not, it is utterly hedonistic, with further development on cork if you so wish.”
