2020 Blue Pyrenees Bone Dry Rosé
Join our Wine Club for 25% off all wine orders.
Brilliant salmon pink colour.
Aromas of strawberry, musk stick and red apple.
The palate follows on from the aroma’s lead with red apple, rosewater and a strong creamy confection mid palate giving an overall “turkish delight” effect. You will find a soft fleshy palate with plenty of length and structure whilst retaining a crisp, fresh & dry finish term.
The vines started the 2019/2020 season with good soil moisture and enjoyed a mild Spring, rainfall in January refreshed the vines which lead to ideal ripening conditions in the Autumn. Parcels of Pinot Noir grapes from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard and select Merlot blocks were quickly pressed after night harvesting to minimise colour and phenolic extraction. The resulting pale pink juice was fermented to dryness by selected yeast strains, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The young wines then underwent malo-lactic fermentation whilst being battonaged on primary yeast lees for 6 months, which imparts the creamy mid palate and naturally stabilises the wine. These grapes and techniques create an ideal luncheon wine that matches many foods but should be served lightly chilled.
