Estate Rosé 2023


This is a pale Rosé, and has the floral, aromatic qualities I look for, namely soft strawberry and red fruit notes, a touch of pear and lime or lemon. The palate is fulsome without being weighty and the acid and sugar should be in complete balance. The key component of Rosé is freshness, and the bottle and your glass are the best places for this.



From the 1.5hectare Jocks Block next to our Home Block. We harvested the fruit for this wine on the 26th of March 2021. On the way back to the winery, we picked up some Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc from rogue vines in both Porters and Off The Grid Vineyards. Based on bin numbers, it’s 91% Pinot Noir, 6 % Sauvignon Blanc and 3% Pinot GrisAt the winery we put the bins straight into the press for whole bunch processing. This gives us less solids and preserves more aromatic qualities in the resulting wine. The juice was settled over 2 days, then racked, allowed to warm up and inoculated with yeast. Fermentation lasted about 12 days in total. We kept the wine cool, then stabilised and filtered the wine just prior to bottling in July 2021.We made no acid or sugar additions as we like to just reflect the wine as it is.
