The last time we spoke about Rosé we spoke of special occasions and moments where baking cakes were involved. Well, it seems that no matter how many times I tried to slice it there just weren’t enough pieces to go around.
Bone dry with savory notes and a strawberry bouquet it was seductive, so much so that we sold out within weeks of release.
Note to self: next time bake a larger cake.
This vintage I’m planning to double the production and use some of the Pinot Noir from the vines running through the middle of the vineyard which I believe will produce the same wonderful characteristics established in the Rosé produced this year, a delicately balanced mineral and fruit ensemble with playful flavours and a serious finish; the thinking man’s Rosé.
Initial release will be through the cellar door and online only.
As every sun rises it must also set, but the beauty of it is that inevitably it will occur again and again and again. Each rise subtly different from the next, but held together by a common thread of colour, flavour, length and love.
