Nose: Fragrant with red cherry, raspberry and strawberry aromas.

Vintage: This Rose was produced from hand picked Pinot Noir grapes after a warm sunny Autumn which produced great quality fruit and excellent flavours.
Wine Making: All fruit was crushed and destemmed and held overnight in the press to allow for colour extraction before being cool fermented to preserve the vibrant primary fruit characters.
Sulphur: This wine is made with minimal levels of sulphur/SO2/preservative 220.
Vegan: This wine is suitable for vegan diets.
Residual Sugar: 4 g/L
A delightful rose, the bouquet is pristine and fragrant with floral, red cherry and subtle stone fruit notes.
It's juicy and lively on the palate with excellent fruit intensity, finishing long and refreshing.
