A classical approach to Rose winemaking was employed in the creation of this wine. Harvested grapes were left to rest briefly on skins before being gently pressed. The gentle extraction of colour during this period has resulted in the wines delicate pink hue. Following a brief settling period the juice was then cool fermented to ensure the preservation of fruit purity, freshness and aromatic intensity. Post fermentation the wine rested for several months before being lightly fined, filtered and bottled.
