'It finishes clean and dry, balanced and long. Lovely drinking rosé, delicious.'

Delicately balanced dry rosé made from it’s own dedicated block of hand-selected grapes from the Cape Bernier estate in Marion Bay.
For the rose purists who like it dry and savoury, this is an exceptional wine. Expressive, with great length, it would serve as an excellent aperitif, or paired with salmon nigiri and other seafoods.
With our Rosé we are looking to make the highest quality possible example of this style from our terroir. For us that means a crisp and dry premium Rosé with a refreshing dry palate made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes showing strawberry and raspberry, complemented by texture, balance and length. Our Rosé is a high quality wine and not a collection of leftovers from making other wines.
Our Rosé is a single block within a single vineyard Rosé an approach that is used for only the finest wines. Our Block A Rosé is the highest block in our vineyard and consists of 100% Pinor Noir 115 clone grafted on Cabernet Sauvignon. The grafting process took some years to take fully and the 115 vines are very low yielding. We pick it fairly light at 12-13 Baumé and the result is lightly flavoured grapes with high acidity that we think are perfect for cool climate Rosé.
Our approach to making the Rosé is to capture the refreshing nature of the vines with minimal intervention. The grapes are crushed and then left to soak up some colour and flavour for a short period of time before being pressed and left to ferment over a period of weeks. The wine then settles before being bottled and on the shelf in a relatively short period of time as it is a fresh wine designed to be drunk young.
A crisp, summer wine with a refreshing dry palate made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes. A fruit forward bouquet of strawberry shortcake and raspberry is complemented by texture, balance and length. A perfect match to enjoy with light and delicate salads, spicy foods, as well as fresh seafood or soft white cheeses.
'Developed, medium orange-pink colour; the bouquet also developed and pinoty, showing some interesting complexity. Smoky strawberry and spice. I like the flavours here. There is some complexity and the balance is good and soft, not too sweet nor tart. It finishes clean and dry, balanced and long. Lovely drinking rosé, delicious.'
