Product Description

Blush pink/salmon appearance. Lifted aromas of candy, florals and watermelon with a Cabernet background. The palate is gentle to begin but grows in amplitude to reveal a rich core of fruit. We have bottled this Rose as soon as possible to capture the pristine fruit flavours of our unique vineyard. We recommend that you drink this wine in its youth to fully enjoy its vibrancy and freshness.

The Pyrenees region of Central Victoria is well known for producing red wines with great colour, body and richness. We wanted to harness these attributes to produce a Rose with character and depth of flavor. Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in the moderate climate of the region and is well suited to making the style we were after.

Region: Pyrenees Victoria 100%

Composition:Cabernet Sauvignon 100%

Vintage 2014

For our first Rose, we wanted to produce flavor without heaviness or tannin so after crushing we left the juice on skins for only a short period before draining and pressing. Fermentation took place in tank at cool temperatures. Once fermentation was complete the wine was racked off gross lees and left to develop on its fine lees for six months prior to bottling in November 2013. 

Analysis:

Alcohol: 13.5%

Harvest date:28-29 March

Vintage conditions :

An excellent growing season for Cabernet Sauvignon, being mild and without extremes of temperature. This meant we were able to harvest a parcel of fruit for Rose at lower sugar levels and be assured of ample flavor and character in the finished wine. We chose fruit from a block that produces wines with lower tannin levels than those blocks with less access to natural groundwater.
