Overview

Our 2020 Rosé is 100% Tempranillo, sourced from the Hunter Ridge vineyard. The 2020 growing season was the hottest and driest on record and this had the effect of restricting yield and concentrating fruit flavours. While fires and smoke were a real potential issue, this vineyard was never in proximity and the grapes remained unaffected by this. This vineyard had access to water that was able to be used to keep vines healthy. The dry conditions also meant that there was no disease pressure and that the vines were healthy with good foliage for fruit ripening.

The fruit was harvested in the cool of the night and transported to our Hunter Valley Winery. The grapes were then destalked and destemmed directly into the press and pressed up at low pressure to minimize tannin pickup. The juice was lightly fined and filtered where the yeast strain DV10 was used. Post-fermentation, the wine was fined before being stabilized and clarified before bottling.
