Flametree Pinot Rose 2018
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 ton 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 fined and then wild fermented on Pinot Grigio lees. Both were fermented dry, no sugar was added to this wine.
The Rosé 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. This lovely dry savoury style of Rosé than can be enjoyed throughout the year with a range of Mediterranean dishes or as an aperitif.
