Flametree Pinot Rose 2016

Flametree Pinot Rose 2016

WINEMAKER'S NOTES
After being chilled overnight to about 8 degrees the whole bunches were loaded into the press, the press was rotated a few times and then the grapes sat for three hours. We then pressed out the first 500 litres per tonnes into tank and the second 120 litres per tonne into old French oak puncheons. The first pressed juice was tank fermented pretty clean, the light pressings were wild fermented on Chardonnay lees. Both were fermented dry, no sugar was added to this wine.

TASTING NOTES
This is a lovely modern dry savoury style of Rose than can be enjoyed throughout the year with a range of Mediterranean dishes or as an aperitif. The Rose has a distinctive pale orange colour. Aromas of red fruits overlay subtle   floral and candied strawberry characters. The palate is deliberately savoury, with moderate weight, soft chalky tannins and dry finish. The lees and wild ferment have provided a nice foil to the lovely red berry fruit of the  Pinot Noir.

I am one of those people who usually bypass rose but I love this one as it is not too sweet at all. Splurged and bought a case for the holiday season.
