The grapes for this wine are grown on the Tietjen vineyard in the Hexton Hills appellation of Gisborne. The Dijon 777 clone are carefully managed to produce quality table wine. With only three canes laid down for the season, these lower yields ensure early ripeness with intense fruit flavours.
The juice for the Rosé was syphoned from the Pinot Noir and cool soaked prior to fermentation once the colour and flavour had reached the perfect intensity for this style. After slight clarification, the juice was fermented at cool temperatures to maximise red berry flavours and floral aromatics in the final wine. The use of gentle fining agents prior to filtration has ensured that the resulting wine has silken texture and is brimming with flavours and aromas.
