Mt. Beautiful Rosé

Flavor Profile:
Traditionally made Rosé produced from Pinot Noir juice that was pressed off after a period of light contact and fermented in barrel and tank. Our 2016 vintage boasts floral notes and intense sweet red berry aromas on the nose, while offering a dry palate that’s creamy in texture with good acidity. With hints of fresh-cut watermelon and pink grapefruit, this wine is medium bodied with a considerable finish.

For the Aficionado:
The Pinot Noir is planted on the Southern section, which has the highest elevation in the vineyard, providing extra warmth and less exposure to frost. In addition to this our Pinot Noir is closely planted to reduce vigour resulting in lower crop levels, allowing us to ripen these grapes to achieve a true expression of this variety. Our Pinot Noir is all hand tended throughout the season and at harvest. Our mix of Pinot Noir clones were specifically chosen for their flavour profile with 50% of the vineyard planted in Burgundy clones. Dijon clone 667 fills out the middle palate, while BDX 777 provides a long finish. The rest of the vines are a mixture of seven other clones, including UCD 5, UCD 6, 114 and 115. The aim of these selections is to build sound palate structure in the wine, providing a vibrant ruby wine with
ripe fruit, subtle tannins, great length and persistence of flavour.
