Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago
The 2020 Rosé is a dry style, with a pale salmon hue. Drawing inspiration from the Provence Rosés of the South of France, It is refreshing, yet has good weight and depth. With notes of raspberry coulis, fresh strawberries and lime, it is a perfect wine for lunch or as an appetizer with nibbles.
The Carrick Rosé is made from estate grown, single vineyard, BioGro certified organic Pinot Noir grapes. The wine is made with two techniques – saignée or bleeding wine off skins and direct pressing the grapes on arrival at the winery - as per a white wine. The juice was fermented in old oak barrels using ambient or wild yeasts, where it was allowed to mature for 4 months. Blended, filtered and fined using Bentonite, it was then bottled.
