Winemaking

The delicate pink colour of this wine comes from the 6 hours the Pinot Noir and Gamay Noir juice spent fermenting on-skin. Once fermented, the wine is re-passed over the skins and lees of our Appassimento (dried) Chardonnay grapes, adding depth and complexity of flavour. A one of a kind, Amarone influenced rosé – inspiring the name of this flavourful wine.

  • Ripasso Style Rosé
  • Stainless steel fermented
Nose

On the nose, the Amarosé holds aromas of wild strawberry, fresh peach, apricot, mango and Fuji apple.

Palate

The palate has elegant flavours of summer fruit to match the nose, and an elegant mid-palate weight finishing with a mouth-watering citrus acidity.

Food Pairing

Delightful on its own on the patio, or as a welcoming beverage for guests. Serve with summer salads, calamari, fish tacos, roasted chicken, grilled rainbow trout, pork tenderloin, Moroccan couscous, or turkey burgers
