2017 Hart & Hunter Rosé
2017 HUNTER VALLEY BOUTIQUE WINESHOW
Rose' Style Open Vintage
History & Provenence
Another wonderful adventure through the Black Series, with the release of the next Rose', made from Hunter Valley Shiraz.
We have made this wine in the Saignée style, or bleedoff, as it is often referred by. This method is often used to create the most delicate of the Rosés. The juice is gathered from the weight of the grapes pressing down on top of each other and bleeding off the shiraz juice. As the juice is in contact with the skins for a very short time, the colour is light, yet the wine produced is full and fruity retaining great freshness. We sent a portion of the juice to barrel for wilde ferment, whilst the remainder was fermented in stainless steel. All components were then blended together giving us a sumptuous, delicious wine.
The wine is pale blush, with aromas of strawberries & cream. The palate is refreshingly dry with red currant, pink musk and a lovely balance of acidity, followed with a flavoursome,
yet savoury finish.
The Rose' is drinking well with char-grilled prawn skewers & tzatiki..
A beautiful food wine to be drunk chilled right now!.
