A must have for lovers of dry rose! This rose made from early harvested pinot noir is a perfect example of the variety, marrying full fruit flavours with a crisp dry finish.
Pale pink with hints of orange hue, as you open the Blue Pyrenees Bone Dry Rose you'll be struck by delicate creamy aromas and the distinct smells of glazed cherries. On the palate fresh strawberry fruits dominate along with strong creamy confection flavours finishing in a crisp, fresh & dry finish.
Awards and Accolades
2016 Vintage: 92 Points - James Halliday, Wine Companion "Night harvested, lightly pressed, fermented in stainless steel, includes 2% pinot meunier. Slight salmon tinge to the colour; this is a very enjoyable rose, however oxymoronic that may seem, with a succulent fruity stream of fruit, and no residual sugar."
From the Winery
Select blocks of Pinot Noir grapes from the Blue Pyrenees Estate vineyard were lightly pressed soon after night harvesting to minimise colour and phenolic extraction.
The resulting pale pink juice was fermented to dryness by selected yeast strains, in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The young wine was agitated on its yeast lees for 6 months to impart the creamy mid palate and naturally stabilise the wine. These techniques create an ideal luncheon wine that matches many foods but should be served chilled.
