50th Parallel Estate Pinot Noir Rosé 2019
Our Pinot Noir Rosé is made exclusively from Pinot Noir. The grapes are cultivated to focus ripe berries towards the lighter red fruit flavours (like strawberries and redcurrant). We use the noble Maceration method to make our special Rosé. Once ripened, the grape bunches are selectively hand harvested and destemmed and crushed into a closed fermenter. The wine is then chilled to almost freezing temperatures for a 36 to 48 hour period. The juice is then drained off, skins pressed, then both are combined and settled. Cold fermentation then begins in stainless steel tanks for maximum aromatic expression.
