This rosé wine was produced from our Estate vineyard Cabernet Franc. The grapes were harvested and left on their skins for a few hours of skin contact before pressing to achieve the lighter pink hue of the wine. The juice was cold-settled for 48 hours before being racked off its lees. The juice was then warmed to 14 degrees and underwent a cool long ferment in stainless steel tanks which allowed us to capture the varietal aromas and the pure expression of the Twenty-Mile Bench. Once fermentation finished naturally, the wine was then racked off its ferment lees and stabilized, before filtering and bottling.
This wine has a wild salmon colour with a clear hue. As you swirl the wine, beautiful fruit flavours burst from the glass, along with aromas of raspberry, cotton candy, pomegranate, and soft hints of citrus. This is a medium- light bodied wine with nuances of raspberry compote, watermelon, and citrus zest. This dry rosé will leave lingering notes dancing along the palate, with a balanced, refreshing acidity that carries through to the finish.
Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixing, spinach strawberry and goat cheese salad with pomegranate vinaigrette.
