A dry and textured style which capitalises on Sangiovese’s delicious “sweet” core of sour cherry fruit. The 2019 Sangiovese Rosé is brimming with cranberry and strawberry aromas. The palate explodes with the flavours of fresh juicy raspberries and sour cherries, culminating with a lingering fine tannin finish.
- Winemaking Notes
2-5 hours for the extraction of additional flavour and mouthfeel. Oak ageing: 10% natural fermentation in oak 2 months; 6 year old French Oak Hogsheads.
- Growing Conditions
The 2018/19 growing season was one of extremes. The vines had to endure some challenging conditions during bud-burst and flowering as well as warmer weather following veraison. Fortunately, February and March provided perfect ripening weather allowing the vines to comfortably cruise through to harvest. Whilst yields were slightly lower, the concentration and vibrant flavour in the resulting fruit was definitely a highlight.
