It could bring you to tears.

Vineyard: Noon

Our High Noon Rosé is produced predominantly from unirrigated Grenache bush vines planted on their own roots in 1934 and 1943. Average yields for these vines is 1.5 to 2 tons per acre/25-35 hl/ha (depending on adequate winter rainfall).

Yield: 30 hl/ha

Soil Type

The grapes are grown on a sandy loam over clay soil and the old vines have a deep root system which helps produce intensely flavoured grapes for this soft, full bodied rosé.

Harvest Notes

Small Grenache crop in 2022 due to poor set. Some Mataro and a little Graciano included this year.


The grapes are hand-picked in the cool of the morning and taken directly to the winery to be crushed into open vats. After one night in contact with the skins, the rose juice is pressed off, followed by a cool fermentation and maturation for 6 months in our old oak cask (foudre) reserved for this purpose.


22.5 hl foudre and 2 barrels.

Oak influence: No new oak influence. Maturation in old foudre (c 1960) and barrels to aid clarification and stabilisation.
Months in bottle: 10


Closure: Screw top
