Upcoming Offering – Tupelo Pinot Noir Rosé 2009

I have always been a fan of dry rosé made from Pinot Noir and this wine reminds me why. It has a wonderful blend of strawberry and raspberry aromas with just a hint of earthiness. The palate shows classic Pinot Noir balance with that important mid palate weight, (without utilising residual sugar). The grapes were harvested quite early (~20 Brix), crushed and left to cold soak for 48 hours before light pressing and cool fermentation in stainless steel. The result is a delicate and balanced rosé with excellent food pairing potential… a summer drinking winner! Drink now to 2014. 4 stars.
