Story: This unique Rosé is made from 80% Durif and 20% Pinot Noir from the K1 vineyard.
Vintage: The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Some late spring rain provided a bit of relief from the dry conditions. A heatwave in January was luckily too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. This was followed by a very mild and dry finish to the vintage, allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.
Nose: Beautiful aromas of Turkish Delight, rose petals and strawberry are complemented by notes of candied orange rind.
Palate: The palate is juicy with flavours of watermelon and strawberries and cream, followed by a crisp, refreshing mouthfeel with great balance and acidity.
Food Pairings: Try this wine with a Thai red seafood curry.
