Eyes

Brilliant salmon pink colour.

Nose

Aromas of strawberry, musk and rose petals.

Mouth

The palate follows on from the aroma’s lead with red forest fruits, rosewater and a strong creamy confection mid palate giving an overall “turkish delight” effect whilst retaining a crisp, fresh & dry finish.

Winemaking Notes

The cool 17/18 growing season had good rains until November removing the need for irrigation until the new year. All blocks of Pinot Noir grapes from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard & select Merlot & Shiraz blocks were quickly pressed soon after night harvesting to minimise colour & phenolic extraction. The resulting pale pink juice was fermented to dryness by selected yeast strains, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The young wines then underwent malolactic fermentation as they were agitated on primary yeast lees for six months to impart the creamy mid palate & naturally stabilise the wine. These grapes & techniques create an ideal luncheon wine that matches many foods but should be served lightly chilled.

Campbell Mattinson

Bone dry rose from Blue Pyrenees Estate, made with pinot noir. Pale colour is the order of the day. High spice is the way of the palate. This is a strawberried, pippy, spice-laden rose with anise and orange characters adding bass and treble respectively. It’s very good. It hits the pale-dry style bang on.
