Winemaker’s Notes

Alluring aromas suggest juicy apple, grapefruit, Chantilly cream, peppermint and cinnamon.

With a perky, tingly mouthfeel, Vivant delivers flavours of strawberry, sour cherry, cantaloupe and citrus, leaving almond and sweet pepper on the finish.


When harvested from the Malivoire Winery Estate Vineyard, the grapes’ sugars averaged 19.5° Brix. Fermentation and 12 weeks to clarify in stainless steel preceded bottling in December. Alcohol was measured at 12.5%, residual sugar 0, titratable acidity at 5 grams per litre and pH at 3.2. Production filled 705 cases. Will drink well through 2019.

    The sunshine and warmth of the 2016 vintage shines through in this very fine second edition of the Vivant rosé by Malivoire, styled after the southern French, Provençal style…ready to enjoy in early summer. The palate has very good verve and liveliness in a dry style, firm and crisp, with delicate red berry fruit and very good length. Very tidy.
