Winemaking Information:Several different parcels of fruit were selected for the Rose, then made using different winemaking methods; the early picked fruit (some handpicked & some machine harvested) was crushed and pressed with a short time on skins to pick up some colour in the juice. Some riper picked fruit was handled by the ‘Saignee’ method; the juice being drained from the crusher with just a hint of colour and then fermented at cool temperatures, along with the first portion, to dryness. We’ve bottled this wine early so as to maximise all the delicate fruit flavours.
