Vineyard Notes: The grapes are sourced from Bridge, which is a single vineyard located in the heart of the Wairau Valley and borders the Wairau River. Vines are sustainably farmed.
Winemaking Notes: Fruit was picked early, at 22 brix to ensure lower alcohol and freshness. 80% was direct pressed and 20% had 12 hours of skin contact. The juice was settled overnight before being racked into tank with lots of solids for fermentation at cool temperature to retain fruity esters. Post fermentation, the wine was racked off its gross lees and left to mature on fine lees for a month or so. Wine was bottles early to lock in the freshness.
Tasting Notes: Bone dry and with an indisputably versatile style intended for consumption all year. Why limit yourself? When in doubt, drink rosé.
