Wild Earth Pinot Noir Rosé 2016

“It might be the best Rosé I’ve made to date” - Jen Parr, winemaker


Our 2016 Rosé has a beautiful strawberry pink hue that hints at the array of aromas that will dazzle and delight. Intensely aromatic - the florals and bright red fruit dance in the glass. Energetic aromas of cherries, wild strawberries, and red currant are underscored by gooseberry and fresh rose petals. It is a dry style Rosé with incredible concentration and sweet red fruit that is perfectly balanced by vibrant acidity which is the hallmark of wines from Gibbston. Understanding that the result often mirrors the intention, we set out to make a complex Rosé that is balanced and engaging - truly a kaleidoscope for the senses.

Details

The 2016 Wild Earth Rosé fruit came from an established vineyard in Gibbston with about 25% coming from a higher elevation site in Lowburn. These vineyards were selected purposefully for their potential to produce complex and balanced Rosé. The Lowburn vineyard was harvested on the 29th of March and was fermented in older oak with a mix of racked juice and full solids to give texture and some earthy notes. The Gibbston vineyard was picked almost a month later on the 26th of April and was fermented at cooler temperatures in stainless steel tanks. Grapes from both blocks were left on skins for 2 days before pressing in order to extract the beautiful pink hue.

Sam Kim, Wine Orbit:
"It is instantly appealing on the nose showing strawberries and spring flowers with a touch of succulent stone fruit notes. The palate delivers excellent vibrancy and intensity, together with whispering sweetness and refreshing acidity, finishing long and tasty".
