Winemaker's Notes

The nose entices with raspberry, pink grapefruit, cherry  and pear.  Fresh and zesty to the tongue, Rosé Moira brims with flavours of strawberry, grapefruit, pomegranate and cantaloupe.

Hand-picked in the cool dawn of September 23rd from the winery’s Moira Vineyard.  Grape sugars averaged 20.7° Brix.

The juice was gently pressed for minimal contact with the grape skins.  After chilling in a horizontal “milk tank” with regular batonnage, the juice was transferred to a vertical steel tank for cool fermentation.  The finished wine was bottled in January 2020.

Alcohol was measured at 12.5%, residual sugar 0 grams per litre, titratable acidity at 8.7 grams per litre and pH at 3.19.

Dry: 0 g/L residual sugar

Food Companions:

Serve between 10 and 12° C with Mediterranean fare, goat cheese with garden greens or barbecued pork or salmon.
