Tasting Notes: This wine displays a fragrant bouquet of crushed rose petals and strawberries complemented by an attractive and textured palate of sweet violet, cranberry and cherry fruit.
Food Matches: This wine is best served chilled as an aperitif or alternatively would perfectly accompany a variety of Thai, Indian and Middle Eastern food.
Winemaking notes: 3 tonnes of Dolcetto fruit was machine harvested at 11.5 beaume during the cool of night of the 21st of February to preserve intense fruit characters. The timing of harvest is critical in order to realise the cherry and cranberry characters and retain the fragrances desired in our Rose wine. The fruit was destemmed and sent immediately to the bag press where the free run juice was collected – resulting in a juice displaying only a tinge of pink extracted from the skins. Fermentation was conducted at low temperatures in order to preserve the fresh varietal characters of the Dolcetto fruit. The wine was sterile filtered prior to bottling.
