Huapai Rosé 2015
A full and fruity style wine. Sweet strawberry and wild berry fruit flavours add richness.
For the third year in a row we have had beautiful growing conditions in our Huapai vineyard. Our 2015 Rosé has been assembled from around 76% Malbec and 24% Merlot. We handpicked the Malbec on April 1
and the Merlot on April 2
. Both parcels were whole bunch pressed. This has allowed us to achieve the lovely pale pink colour we so desired. The wine was tank fermented and then stabilised and bottled on 16/7/15.
At bottling this wine was a delightful very pale pink. At the edge it has a pale purple iridescence. This is from Malbec. We call it the ‘Malbec ring of confidence’.
Clean and fresh and dominated by summer red fruit aromas.
This wine is full-bodied for a Rosé. It has real richness and weight on the palate. It is soft and round and finishes with a sweet fruit lift.
As with all Rosés, this wine is delicious young, but we believe it has the structure to gain complexity while keeping its freshness over a period of 2 – 4 years.
Suggested Wine List Description
A full and fruity style wine. Sweet strawberry and wild berry fruit flavours add richness
leading on to a soft and rounded finish.
