Vineyard and Winemaking info
60-year-old Grenache vines grown in deep sand on the Wait vineyard high in the Blewitt Springs subregion were hand harvested early at 12 Baume specifically for Rose production. The bunches were destemmed and allowed to rest in the press for 3 hours to extract just the right amount of colour, flavour and tannin. Fermentation was carried out at low temperature (12-13C) in order to retain aromatics. The wine underwent partial spontaneous Malo-Lactic fermentation in tank. No fining.
