Grenache - fruit from dry grown old vines are handpicked and then whole bunch pressed to stainless steel where the juice is given extended contact with solids for 10 days prior to ferment to build texture. Juice is then racked to big old French oak puncheons to undergo cool and slow ferment.
Pinot Noir - soft pressing to extract only the palest of juice then naturally fermented at a cool cellar temperature in stainless steel. Kept on yeast lees with gentle stirring for a few months to build a creamy texture.
With its pale salmon hue, this wine is like a hazy sunrise in a glass. Subtle tones of toffee apple, watermelon, yellow raspberries, strawberry, and sea spray form a beachy bouquet. The red fruits present on the nose become more concentrated on the palate lending depth of flavour as well as texture to this wine. A savoury note of orange peel and a pinch of spice appear towards the back of the palate and linger there after the dry, refreshing finish.
