Hand harvested, hand sorted blend of 70% Cabernet Franc and 30% Syrah. Free run juice pumped back over skins and cold soaked overnight. Whole bunch gentle press. Fermented by wild yeasts in neutral oak barrel undergoing partial malolactic fermentation. Blend aged gracefully on fine lees in barrel, then spent an additional 6 months in stainless steel before bottling with minimal sulphur dosage.
A beautiful, dry wine in the style of fresh Loire Valley rose. Berry fruit, watermelon and lightly peppery nose, with an exhilarating palate of stony mineral notes, bright nervy acidity and refined texture. An excellent rose to drink by itself on a patio, or easy pairing with food.
