Red Queen Pinot Noir Rose 2017
This Rosė would be a perfect accompaniment to a summer picnic or alongside spicy Indian cuisine.
After crushing and a short period of time on skins (to extract the delicate pink hue found in the wine), the grapes were pressed and the juice inoculated. Fermentation of this Rosė took place at low temperatures to retain the fruity appeal of the style. The wine spent time on lees with periodic stirring to increase weight and volume, then lightly fined and bottled.
Aromas of raspberry, strawberry and cream with a hint of citrus and some sweet pastry notes. The palate shows red berries, nectarine and melon. Panna-cotta and spice with good volume, sweet mid-palate fruit and a lingering dry finish.
