To achieve the desired colour, most of the juice was drained directly
after crushing, with some blocks receiving up to two hours
of skin contact to ensure that the colour remained the precise
salmon-pink hue desired. Each variety was handled separately and
fermented cold at 14°C to retain the delicate aromas and flavours.
The final blending of varietal wines created complexity, consistency
and balance before bottling.
On the nose: This wine presents complex red berry fruit notes.
Palate: An appealing pale salmon colour leads to bright red fruit,
strawberry and red berries. Good freshness, balance and drinkability.
Crisp and dry, but with a pleasant hint of fruit sweetness.
Ageing potential: Enjoy within one to three years from vintage.
Grapes were sourced from vineyards grown in a cross-section of
regions and specifically selected for their ability to deliver top
quality grapes year on year. To get the perfect colour for this wine
the grapes were all hand-harvested, thus minimising any potential
colour extraction. A healthy harvest was spread over a couple of
weeks, from mid-February to the latter part of March.
