Limited skin contact to extract ruby pink colour and cool fermentation to retain distinctive fruitiness.
Lovely cherry blossom colour. Fruit-driven style with abundant sweet strawberry and rose petal aromas. Also a hint of spiciness that is derived from the Shiraz grapes. The palate is reminiscent of candyfloss with hints of raspberry. A well balanced and cheerful Rosé.
