Winemaking Notes: Woodside, located in the eastern region of the Adelaide Hills produces ideal climatic conditions for the production of premium Pinot Noir Rose’. This wine has been handcrafted in an old-world savoury style while maintaining a vibrant fruit core. Varietal composition 90% Pinot Noir (multiple clones 114, 115, D4V2, 777 and MV6) was fermented using inoculated yeast in a stainless-steel tank between 12-16 degrees for around 21 days. The remaining 10% is a combination of Shiraz, Cabernet, Merlot and Sangiovese and was fermented using natural yeasts in a seasoned French Oak barrel for 12 days. The two parcels were blended together just before bottling and uses minimal additions and preservatives.
