Our Rose was made using Grenache from the Br Hulka block, planted in 1920. There is a section of this block where the old vines are tapping into an underground water source. This means that even in dry years like 2020, these vines produce good yields and plum-sized berries which is perfect fruit to make delicate Rose wine.
The fruit was harvested using a selective harvester in the cool early morning. At the winery, the grapes were crushed, chilled to 5C and loaded into the press, where it remained without SO2 till the next morning. After pressing a cool and controlled fermentation of settled juice occurred.
A bright pale pink colour. The aroma has characteristics of rose petal, strawberry and gooseberry bush. The palate is delicate and fine. A core of sweet fruit belies its sugar dryness.
