Pinot Noir Ros? 2019

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 go 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,raspberry and even cranberry, along with hints of rose petal and cinnamon. The palate is dry, creamy and shows some complex flavours of berry fruits, pear and quince notes.  

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

The Awards

Cameron Douglas: 92 points  "Floral and fruity with aromas of light red berry fruits - sweet red plum and cherry, strawberry and white flowers with a seam of minerality. Bright, fresh and fruity on the palette with flavours that mirror the nose. Super fine fruit tannins add texture and remind me of the minerality".
