The tasting notes

Pinot Noir Rosť - Click to purchase

Our Domain Road vineyard is sited in a sheltered valley in the town of Bannockburn which provides a unique micro-climate, ideal for producing premium wines. Defiance vineyard is on nearby Felton Road with gently sloping North facing vines.

The Pinot Noir fruit for this Rosé comes from vines at our Domain Road vineyard 33% and Defiance vineyard 67%. The same hand tended quality grapes goes into making this wine as we use for our premium estate Pinot Noir.

The Wine

Each vintage we endeavour to make our Rosé with our trademark pale pink colour. This to us the colour a Rosé should be.  On the nose we have lifted aromas of strawberry, raspberry, stone fruit, and a hint of candy floss which belies the crisp dry style of the wine. The palate shows some complex flavours of nectarine and pear, as well as strawberry and cream, which have become the trade mark of our Pinot Noir Rosé.

 A dry style wine with creamy texture, well balanced acidity, and an attractive crisp, clean finish.

 Cuisine Magazine

What the Judges said - John Belsham enjoyed this wine’s “touch of herbes de Provence”, in among a bowl of subtle strawberry notes. Crunchy acids underpin the fruit and supply freshness and vigour. The finish is tight and dry. Serve it with smoked salmon blinis.
