Farm Hand Rosé (6pk)
|Categories for this Product:||
Winemaker: Con-Greg Grigoriou
Vineyards: The moderate, dry climate with very low rainfall during autumn and fertile soils is perfect suited to Organic Viticulture. The well established vines (up to thirty years of age) are planted widely apart for airflow to minimise disease pressure and minimal drip irrigation ensures low yielding fruit with rich flavours and varietal expressiveness
Winemaking: Fruit is harvested during the early morning hours to retain freshness and partially whole bunch pressed. A fast and precise vinification in stainless steel with minimal oxygen contact maximises fruit expression and aromatics. A cool fermentation (15 to 18 degrees) is undertaken in stainless steel tanks before a short rest on lees prior to bottling.
2023 Vintage: Spring was cooler than usual and with more rain events bringing soil moisture levels up. Summer likewise was cool yet with enough sunny days to enable beautiful albeit slower ripening. This made for a later vintage than prior years, but the resultant fruit quality is very, very good.
Tasting Note: Organic Rosé never tasted so good with a nose displaying great purity of fruit. Attractive pale pink in the glass with red berry vibrancy and some complexing spice notes lead to a moreish palate that delivers a dry style with an exciting texture and a clean, crisp finish.
