The 2015 VVS Pinot Rose (Very Very Special) has a bright pink color. A very aromatic Rose with aromas of strawberry, raspberry & passionfruit. A generous palate with fresh strawberry, concentration and lingering finish.
The general vintage experienced a challenging growing season, nothing was predictable due to the weather. We did manage a typical mid-April harvest. This allowed for the ripening fruit to develop good varietal flavors. The fruit at harvest was impeccably clean with good maturity.
Pinot Noir Clone 5, Abel 115. Hand-picked. The whole bunches enter the de-stemmer / crusher. Crushed berries then macerate in their own juice. Juice slowly extracts its pink color. Press off 70% of the fruit, 30% was a bleed from Drumsara Pinot Noir.
