Flametree Pinot Rose 2011
Made in the traditional Rose method by crushing and chilling Pinot Noir grapes, then leaving them on skins for 6 hours prior to pressing and settling. The 2011 Pinot Rose was stainless steel fermented using an aromatic yeast strain, the yeast was then stirred for 3 months at weekly intervals. The aim being to preserve the red fruits and provided added texture in the finished wine.
The 2011 Rose has lifted red fruit aromas reminiscent of cherry, redcurrant and strawberry, with hints of musk stick. The palate has lovely freshness, good texture and a wonderful savoury finish. Rose wines are extremely versatile and can be drunk with food or served as an aperitif over the warmer months. Recommended served slightly chilled.
