Renzaglia Wines - Rose Di Renzo 2021
Grapes: Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer
Deliciously fresh, textured and savoury-edged rosé. The Gewurz shows up beautifully on the nose with all that typical lychee / jasmine goodness but the Pinot really drives the palate. Crisp and dry with red apple and strawberry and a helping of leesy texture and complexity adding to the experience. Great value and very food friendly Rose. Minimal added sulphur.
NOTES FOR NERDS
A blend of Pinot Noir from Kylie and Scott Mosley’s vineyard on the Amaroo road- harvested on 21 February and Gewurtztraminer (15%) from the Boree Lane vineyard harvest on February 19. The Pinot component was pressed straight to a single old French oak puncheon for fermentation with indigenous yeasts. The gewurtz was fermented in stainless with 25% whole berry inclusion for texture and structure prior to being pressed off to barrel. Both had 7 months elevage in old wood prior to blending, a light filtration and a small sulphur addition.
