WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Limited Edition
 
THE COLLABORATION
Following the sell out release of the 2017 vintage, we have released another limited edition Rosé in partnership with our friends Luke and Anna at Romance Was Born. “We are proud to contribute this special label and leave the winemaking up to the experts. Besides the taste, I think Rosé suggests a feeling that isn’t found with most white or red wines. For starters it suggests a feeling of fun and flirtation, much like our clothing and something for all occasions” Anna and Luke, Romance was Born

“Born from a mutual love of Rosé and a shared philosophy of quality curation, creative pairings and nonconformity, this Rose is the perfect accompaniment to a Romance was Born state of mind.”

SERVING TEMPERATURE | 10 - 12°

CELLAR POTENTIAL | Up to 2 years

TASTING NOTES

The colour is a clear light salmon pink The nose has vibrant red fruit and spice aromas and the palate is packed with juicy fruit flavours and savoury complexity. This wine is perfect for sipping on its own and will pair handsomely with a range of foods - pan fried rainbow trout with new potatoes, smoked salmon and cucumber sandwiches, sushi, vegetable frittata antipasto and Vietnamese rice paper rolls, to give just a few suggestions. Rosé is a classic summer sipper, but we reckon rosé is perfect any time of year.

SEASON

While there were no large heatwaves in the 2018 season, it was a warm season overall and the harvest was a little early. Cool weather and regular rain up until Christmas made a slow start to the season, setting up good ground moisture and vine health coming into summer. An extended dry, mild patch over January and February was excellent for ripening Pinot Noir fruit. Bunch weights were high, leading to good yields.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was whole-bunched pressed into stainless steel tanks, picking up just enough colour on the way. The wine was bottled at the close of the July following harvest for this fresh, youthful wine style.
