Our 2019 Rose is made from fruit grown on a small vineyard upon the terra rossa strip, just north of the Parker Estate Cellars.
The grapes were picked in early March, then pressed after 6 hours on skins. A whole-solids ferment at low temperatures was carried out in stainless steel. The free run juice was fermented separately to light pressings before a portion being blended back prior to bottling.
The result is a fresh and bright Rose which shows considerable fruit notes yet delivers a steely dry finish.

From the western end of Vand A Lane on terra rossa soil, pressed after 6 hours on skins, whole solids cool-fermented in stainless steel, the free-run juice fermented separately. Bright, light pink; a substantial rose, with greater texture and structure than most, making it a contender with any cuisine you care to throw at it.

Deceptive wine this, perhaps because it’s so young... Perfect pitch, really, nothing overdone, good line and length as well and a tight finish holding the bundle of joy together.
