Spending a short time on skins at the start of fermentation, the 2019 Rosé is a delicate, pale coral colour. Fermented and aged in stainless steel, this wine has a fresh and fruit driven feel with elegant structure.
On the nose, subtle orchard blossom opens up into more expressive notes of white cherry, peach and nectarine, complemented by a touch of guava. Bright stone fruit follows through on the palate alongside a pleasant hint of mandarin. Dry with a lighter body and a fantastic acidic backbone, this wine has an elegant, smooth finish.
The 2019 Rosé’s light body and delicate fruit need a pairing of equal weight. A salad featuring roasted nuts, fresh peach and a light vinaigrette would be a great match. In terms of protein, think along the lines of grilled scallops, or oven roasted chicken with rosemary. For cheeses, keep things light and fresh with mascarpone or a whipped goat cheese.
