Gerd used a bit of winemaking wizardry to make this beauty. After picking and crushing the grapes for his 2018 Pinot Noir, he bled off 10% of the juice, then fermented it separately at cold temperatures to make this Rosé. It’s called the “saignee” method, and it delivers a much bigger, bolder Rosé than the norm.
To ramp up the flavour and make it as vibrant, fruity and fresh as they come, Gerd left the juice in the tanks for an extra 4 months after fermentation. It was only filtered once prior to bottling. The result is a mouthful of moreish strawberry and raspberry flavours. It’s dry, crisp and refreshing, with more alcoholic oomph than your average Rosé.
