The fruit for the 2019 Wild Earth Pinot Noir Rosé comes from the winery’s favourite vineyard for making Pinot Noir Rosé in Central Otago. This 20+ year old vineyard in Gibbston is purposefully selected for its consistent ability to produce complex, balanced Rosé that is fresh and delicious. The hand harvested grapes were picked later in April and were left on skins for 2 days before pressing in order to extract the beautiful pink hue.
Colour: Beautiful pale pink hue
Nose: Delicious array of red fruit aromas that will unfold in the glass. Intensely aromatic, the floral notes and bright red fruit sing beautifully of “classic” Central Otago Rosé.
Palate: Enticing aromas of cherry, wild strawberry, and raspberry are carried long on the palate by the incredible creamy texture. It is a dry style Rosé with great concentration and sweet red fruit that is perfectly balanced by
vibrant acidity which is the hallmark of wines from Gibbston and a result of the winery’s decision to pick early. A complex Rosé that is balanced and engaging – truly a kaleidoscope for the senses.
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
