Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"This refreshing style Rose was made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, grown on our family owned vineyard. The vibrant pink colour resulted from a gentle whole bunch press. The juice was fermented in stainless steel to retain the varietal and fruit characteristics.
The wine shows delightful aromas of strawberry, honeysuckle and orange blossom with an abundance of nectarine, rockmelon and crème brulee on the palate. A perfect summer aperitif and is best served chilled."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, August 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"The wine is delightfully expressed and fragrant on the nose showing Gala apple, nectarine, lemon peel and floral characters. The palate delivers lovely fruit purity and intensity backed by fine texture and crisp acidity, finishing zesty and lingering. At its best: now to 2021."
90/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2019 (2019 Vintage)
"Sweet ripe and floral bouquet of rosé. Flavours of red melon and strawberry, lemon and tart cherry, roses and dusty mineral suggestions. Balanced and well made with a fine chalky texture and medium+ aidity. Drinkning best from today and through 2021."
