Rosé made from Pinot Noir grown biodynamically and only 35 dozen made.
Taken from the Si Vintners website to explain the winemaking process.
“Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and spontaneously fermented in concrete eggs followed by 8 months ageing in old French oak barriques. Battonage for the first 3 months the wine was retained on lees until bottling. Made with no additives only a minimal sulphur addition at bottling. No fining or filtration.”
Wow. What a wine!
I loved their Semillon, but respectfully rate this higher. It is that good.
Rusty salmon colour.
Big tang of juicy pomegranate hits you first. Followed by yeasty, toasted brioche with ginger and fennel seeds.
Hint of Nori seaweed and a lick of salt.
This is bone dry and very savoury.
Bolt of flavour that runs from the front of your palate, all the way to the back.
Big, long satisfying after taste. Beautiful acid.
Kingfish Ceviche would be a killer combination with this wine.
Yes, I’m a huge fan and this has to be one of the best Rosé wines I have ever had. Si Vintners have well and truely grabbed my attention with the wines they are making.
