Forbidden Vines Pinot Noir Rosé

Select Vintage

2019

Region:

Auckland

Recommended Food:

Would be a perfect accompaniment to a summer picnic or with spicy cuisine.

Recommended Cellaring:

0-3 years

Production Notes:

After harvest, the grapes were quickly crushed and pressed into stainless steel tanks where the juice was fermented at a range of temperatures and with various yeast strains. After extensive tasting trials by the winemakers, and some time of lees to build texture, this Rose was blended and bottled.

Technical Notes:

Alcohol: 12.5%
TA: 6.56 g/L
pH: 3.36
Residual sugar: 3.5 g/L

Tasting Notes:

Orchard fruit aromas with ripe citrus with a hint of strawberry. Soft, well fruited entry, with peach, apple and melon leading. Nice drive with lemon and lime notes continuing onto the juicy finish. Pretty and refreshing.

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.
