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 both our Domain Road vineyard and Defiance vineyard. 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 is the colour a Rosé should be.  On the nose we have lifted aromas of strawberry and raspberry, along with hints of stone fruit and pear which belies the crisp dry style of the wine. The palate is dry and shows some complex flavours of raspberry, peach, melon with a hint of citrus.

A dry style wine, medium bodied with good concentration, well balanced acidity and an attractive long, crisp, clean finish.
