WINEMAKING

The grapes are machine harvested at night at 24 °Balling (Brix).

After fermentation the wine is left on the fine lees for at least two months before bottling.

THE WINEMAKER'S COMMENTS

The wine has a lovely floral bouquet expressing a mixture of berry-fruit flavours which carries through to the palate leaving a long-lasting aftertaste... A fresh, fruity, slightly sweet rosé for everyday enjoyment.

FOOD PAIRING AND SERVING SUGGESTION:

A perfect partner for salads, seafood and light meals in general. Ideal for outdoor picnics and no need for a corkscrew, it’s screw-cap! Serve chilled (7-10°C).
