$23.00Buy Now Description
Soft full flavoured wine with classic varietal flavours of berries, dark cherry and spices complimented by new French oak. Grown at the Homestead, the vineyard is cane pruned and shoot thinned in spring to control crop load.
The fruit is picked at optimal ripeness, crushed and 15% of the juice drained off and fermented separately to be blended into the Rose. The remainder is cold soaked for several days then fermented on skins for about 2 weeks.

An aromatic wine with a clean, crisp and dry citrus finish. The Savagnin grapes are picked in the cool of the early morning, usually 2 picks about 10 days apart to provide a range of ripeness.
The sugar level is between 12 and 13 deg. baume and the grapes are whole bunch pressed. The ferment temperature is maintained between 15 & 18 deg C. Each parcel is fermented separately and blended later.
