Story Behind The Label

 

Showcasing a sun, which provides the warm temperatures to ripen our grapes, this is the perfect drink for warm weather. The cactus reminds us that our grapes are grown on the driest state, on the driest continent on earth and this Provence styled rosé is ‘dry as a bone’.

 

The Fruit

 

A blend of 64% Mataro & 36% Grenache. The Grenache component was grown here on our own vineyards using organic and biodynamic practices while the Mataro comes from older vine material in Greenock. Each variety was picked and made separately. Our soils are quite shallow and have outcrops of ironstone in the vineyard, which gives the wine a nice savoury edge.

 

Winemaking

 

The juice was pressed away from the skins within 3hrs of harvest to ensure that the colour of the rose was not too dark. Fermented in a stainless steel tank to retain freshness & lees stirred to produce a creamy character in the wine, which also helps to soften the acid and make the mouthfeel more rounded.

 

The Wine

 

Very pale pastel pink, almost brassy in colour, with aromas of red apple, fresh raspberries, cherries and strawberry yogurt. The palate is dry, but has great fruit weight and great length. There is some complexity on the palate from the lees stirring. The perfect drink for a sunny day!

The Fruit

A blend of 52% Mataro & 48% Grenache. Of the blend, 64% was grown here on our own vineyards using organic and biodynamic practices while the remaining 36% of Mataro comes from older vine material in Greenock.

Winemaking

The juice was pressed away from the skins within 3hrs of harvest to ensure that the colour of the rose was vibrant and pale. Fermented in a stainless steel tank to retain freshness & lees stirred to produce a creamy character in the wine, which also helps to soften the acid and make the mouthfeel more rounded.

The Wine

Very pale pastel pink, almost copper in colour, with aromas of red apple, fresh raspberries, cherries and strawberry yogurt. The palate is dry, but has great fruit weight and great length. There is some complexity on the palate from the lees stirring. The perfect drink for a sunny day!
