Grenache Rosé 2017
The Grenache Rose has a beautiful soft pink hue which alludes to the delicacy of the wine. The nose shows lovely perfumed aromas of fresh rose petals and ripe strawberries teamed with wonderful fruit intensity on the palate.

Viticulturist Notes
The grapes for this Pinot Noir were picked and crushed during the cool of night to retain their varietal character, while modern winemaking techniques were employed throughout. Fermentation took place in sweeping arm red fermenters, giving the wine a denser, richer colour and allowing for gentle flavour extraction.
Wine Harvest Notes
The best way to describe vintage 2016 is fast & furious! There was no orderly ripening of fruit, no luxury of white fruit followed by red fruit, it was like the flood gates opened and everything just rolled in at once. Again we had little rain and a very hot spring leading up to harvest, which meant things ripened faster than normal. Optimum flavours and ripeness came on more quickly than previous years and the only way around it was to pick as fast as we could. Thankfully we worked our way through it, and the resulting quality is excellent.
Food Recommendations
Great with duck and other game meats, medium intensity dishes like porcini mushroom risotto or soft cheese
