Winemaking

Picture yourself ‘making tracks’ through the courtyard casually sipping rosé mid afternoon. This blushing Rooster has many different ‘feathers’ in the blend; 25% Pinot Blanc and 21% Malbec dominating the coop, while 7 others complete for the show. The grapes were cold soaked on the skins for three days, then a portion of the juice was bled off, a process called "saignée", and aged in stainless steel to preserve the fresh vibrant fruit aromatics and flavours.

Nose

A summer fresh aroma of strawberry, watermelon, crab apple, red currant, cherry and rose petal.

Palate

The medium frame is supported by refreshing acidity. Flavours of red berry, currant and red cherry fill the mouth. Refreshing red fruits and red berry tea notes linger on the finish of this extra-dry rosé.

Appearance

‘Pretty in Pink’ colour

Food Pairing

Fabulous aperitif or summer sipper. Enjoy with tapas, gourmet pizzas, pissaladiere, feta cheese, Greek salads, crab cakes, poached salmon, pan-fried panko crusted trout, spiced shrimp skewers, charcuterie plate, pork tenderloin with rhubarb sauce.
