VITICULTURE:

Climate:

The budburst timing was slightly later than normal and the vines experienced typical spring like conditions of variable temperatures, winds and rain.  Early varieties, such Pinot Noir, flowered in cooler conditions leading to smaller yields.  Other varieties had warm, dry conditions over flowering, resulting in healthy crop levels.  In mid-December, the weather became warm and dry.  January was notable for strong winds that parched the landscape. The later part of the season recorded lower sunshine hours, resulting in delayed sugar ripeness and a later start to harvest


Soils:

Silty loam over free draining gravels

 

Training:

Standard vertical trellis

 

Harvest Date:

3rd April, 2017

WINEMAKING

The grapes were hand-picked, then de-stemmed and held in the press for 3 hours. After a gentle press, the juice was settled for 48 hours. The resulting clear juice was then fermented in tank using a selected yeast strain. We bottled this Pinot Rosé on the 10th August, 2017.
