Pinot Noir Rosé 2021

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.  The fragrant aromas of strawberry, raspberry, melon, peach, pear and redcurrant, alongside apple blossom, rose petals and citrus on the nose give  hint of what is to come. Dry, delicately floral, with red fruits stone fruit and citrus on the palate complemented by good minerality.  

A complex, nicely balanced dry wine with a delicious nectarine finish.  

Food matches: Chicken, oysters, shellfish and soft cheeses.
