Vineyards and Winemaking
This wine was grown in two inland merlot vineyards. Both produce a full favoured
and elegant Rosé. The individual vineyard parcels were pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery, resulting in juice with little colour or tannin. After settling the juice bright the fermentation was conducted at low temperatures to capture the vibrant red fruit flavours we seek in our Esk Valley Rosé.
