A Rosé made using Pinot Noir grapes sourced from a Saint Clair estate owned vineyard located in Marlborough’s lower Rapaura region. The fruit was machine harvested in the cool of the night when the grapes reached optimum ripeness and flavour intensity. The grapes spent a few hours on skins to extract the soft pink colour then were gently pressed. After settling the juice was fermented in stainless steel tank at cooler temperatures to retain aromatics, fruit flavour, and freshness. The wine was kept on its lees to help with texture then stabilised, filtered and carefully prepared for bottling.
