Forbidden Vines Pinot Noir Rosé

Select Vintage

2018

Grape:

Pinot Noir

Region:

Marlborough

Recommended Food:

This Rosė would be a perfect accompaniment to a summer picnic or alongside spicy Indian cuisine.

Recommended Cellaring:

1-3 years

Production Notes:

After crushing and a short period of time on skins (to extract the delicate pink hue found in the wine), the grapes were pressed and the juice inoculated. Fermentation took place at low temperatures to retain the fruity appeal of the style. The wine spent time on lees with periodic stirring to increase weight and volume, then lightly fined and bottled.

Technical Notes:

Alcohol: 12.5%
TA: 6.3 g/L
pH: 3.44
Residual sugar: 6.1 g/L

Tasting Notes:

Floral and fresh aromas of strawberry, melon and apple, and a touch of pink marshmallow. Creamy with notes of cranberry, nectarine and strawberry. Sweet fruits and spice linger through to the crisp finish.
