Brilliant salmon pink colour.
Aromas of red apple, musk & rose petals.
The palate follows on from the aromas with red forest fruits, rosewater & a strong creamy confection mid palate giving an overall “turkish delight” effect whilst retaining a crisp, fresh & dry finish.
- Winemaking Notes
The 2018/2019 growing season provided spring rains & a cool start to summer until the new year before finishing with a dry warm Autumn. Most blocks of Pinot Noir grapes from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard & select Merlot 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 whilst being agitated on primary yeast lees for 6 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.

Bright and delicately expressed, the bouquet shows crunchy apple, blossom, raspberry and subtle spice notes. It’s equally charming on the palate, delivering vibrant mouthfeel and crisp acidity, finishing lingering and mouth-watering.
